GUNTUR: The Election Commission of India (ECI) has directed the Guntur administration to verify two lakh doubtful voters, identified by electoral officers in the district. 

As such, Booth Level Officers (BLOs) have been asked by District Collector K Sasidhar to check suspicious voters in 17 assembly constituencies of the district.
