The “Phantom” — whose video alleging the Congress rigged November’s Assembly polls in Mizoram triggered protest marches — was granted bail on Monday under the condition that he would not make any public statement on the issue.
K Chhawnthuama, a residential school owner and church elder, had claimed that three computer experts, two of them Congress workers, had travelled from Aizawl to CM Lal Thanhawla’s bastion Serchhip, broken open the lock and programmed EVMs with a “radio-wave machine” manufactured by a Malaysia-based company.
During the run-up to the Lok Sabha polls, the EC had issued a clarification saying EVMs are tamper-proof, while the police stated that Chhawnthuama was the victim of a hoax .
