Names of non-TDP sympathisers and people not living in their respective constituencies were found to be deleted from AP voters’ list, said Hyderabad police commissioner Anjani Kumar.

“This was reportedly done after a city-based IT firm conducted a political survey in Andhra Pradesh and shared its details with a TDP key person,” he said, while addressing a press conference here on Wednesday. That ‘key person’ would manipulate the information of non-TDP voters and forward the same to the Election Commission to remove their names, the top cop said.

Preliminary probe by the Hyderabad police revealed that telecallers of TDP-engaged IT Grids (India) Pvt. Ltd. would call the voters to collect the information based on a questionnaire.

As part of the survey, they collect basic details of a person, including name, caste, correct address and even their political preference, Mr. Kumar said. “Based on the political preference of an individual, their names will be deleted,” he said.

Following the complaint lodged by YSRCP general secretary Dasaratha Rami Reddy at SR Nagar police station, the city police formed four teams to probe the case.

“We are in the process of identifying the key person behind the entire survey,” Mr. Kumar said while explaining the features of TDP’s Seva Mitra mobile application.
