Malda (WB): Six days before the first phase assembly polls in Malda district a poll official was arrested from Kaliachak in Malda district on Tuesday following complaints that he deposited a huge number of voter slips, meant for distribution, to a panchayat member.

Official sources said Ohadul Rehman, a booth level officer under Sujapur assembly constituency, was arrested last night after the returning officer filed complaint that he withheld 1200 voter slips from distribution and instead handed over the same to local panchcyat member Enamul Haque.

The voter slips were recovered but Haque could not be traced.

Malda will go to polls on April 18.
