After a search for his name, the official found his name on the list, glanced at him for a moment, and informed him that the remark ‘dead’ had been made in front of his name, leaving him shocked.

“I am very much alive, and have all the documents to support of my being alive. The official searched all the other lists and informed me that it must have been a mistake, and that I could cast my vote. I had seen movie ‘Bhootnath’ and it proved true for me,” Chinchore said.
