'Discarded ballots' in favour of Dr Moonilal found at Parvati Girls Hindu College

Two sets of ballot papers allegedly discarded in black plastic bags have been discovered at the Parvati Girls Hindu College in Penal.

The bags were discovered in a drain at the side of the school this morning by a student.
