NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Bangladesh’s Election Commission is investigating allegations of vote rigging coming from across the country, a spokesman told Reuters minutes before polling for a general election was to close.

“Allegations are coming from across the country and those are under investigation,” S.M. Asaduzzaman said. “If we get any confirmation from our own channels then measures will be taken as per rules”.
