Panaji: The Election Commission has asked central forces to guard Goa borders to prevent smuggling of fake currency ahead of the March 3 state Assembly polls.

BSF and special forces will be deployed to watch the state's borders, officials said. "(Ahead of the election) there is a possibility that fake notes might be smuggled into the state. Election Commission has directed central forces to keep a vigil (of the state borders)," Joint Chief Electoral Officer Narayan Navti said on Friday.

He said Election Commission was receiving complaints about irregularities from various political parties and individuals, which were attended to within 24 hours. "Goa Liquor Traders Association has complained that excise inspector posted at Mapusa was harassing the wholesalers," Navti said.

The inspector was allegedly taking away expensive liquor bottles, threatening the traders to register cases against them under the model code of conduct. "We have referred the matter to Excise Department," Navti said.
