NEW DELHI, Jan 18 - Election Commission (EC) has directed Chief Electoral Officers (CEOs) of five poll-bound States including Manipur to ask top police brass that cash transfers during the election period be done under the protection of cops and that they be kept �informed� about such movements from banks or currency chests.

The EC, in its directives to the CEOs of Manipur, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand and Goa, has cited the standing orders of the poll-body in this regard even as it appended the recent instructions issued by the Department of Financial Services (DFS) under Finance Ministry on the subject.

The EC directives on transportation of cash are seen in the backdrop of an incident in poll-bound Tamil Nadu last year, when three trucks carrying Rs 570 crore were intercepted by EC-appointed surveillance teams. � PTI
