Repolling is being conducted at one of the polling booth in Janpura constituency on Saturday, two days after the Delhi Assembly polls were held on December 4.

Voters registered at the polling booth number 42 at Sarai Kale Khan MCD Primary School will have to cast their votes again on Saturday due to a defect in the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM), said an election official.

"Within one and half hours after the polling began on December 4, a problem was detected with the EVM in the polling booth 42 after which it was replaced. But today at 1 PM, we got an order from the office of Chief Electoral Officer to conduct a repoll at the booth," District Election Officer, New Delhi, A Abhiyankar said.
