This news are completely unrelated with EVMs per se, but do talk about general nature of how porous and carefree Indian administration has become.

Karwar: The Forest Department in Ankola has lodged a police complaint against port officials, some export companies and some handling agents in Belekeri for allegedly exporting about five lakh tonnes of iron ore seized by the Forest Department. Assistant Conservator of Forests Narendra Hittalamakki filed the complaint on Monday.
In April last,forest officials seized about eight lakh tonnes
of iron ore stored in various jetties at Belekeri Port on the charge that they were brought to Belekeri from Bellary district without valid permits. But of the seized cargo about six lakh tonnes were exported to China by different export companies. The case of seizure by forest authorities is pending in the Karnataka High Court.
Mr. Hittalamakki has, in his complaint, said that about six lakh tonnes of the seized ore were stolen
by some people in connivance with the handling agents and port officials to cheat the Government and the tax authorities.
Mahendra Biliye, Belekeri port officer, Satish Sail, Managing Director of Mallikarjuna Shipping, B.N. Shukla of Adani Shipping
, Ramachandra Nayak of Salgoankar Mining Industries, Ravi Selvaraj of ILC, Vaz Ahamad Anwar of Ashapura Mining, Mangaladas Kamat of Overseas Limited, Amar Saranobat of DB Company, Pramod Shet of Lal Mahal Limited, Javed Jialan Saab of Lakshmi Venkateshwara Minerals and Shivaprakash of Metachem Manufacturing have been named in the complaint.
Mr. Hittalamakki, whose house and business premises were raided by the Lokayukta officials last month, blamed the mining lobby for the raid and said that the mining lobby had given a wrong impression of his to the Lokayukta. He said he had been made a scapegoat.
Ankola police are investigating the case.
======end of news=====
We also saw a similar news wherein some 50 trucks containing RDX vanished into thin air. Neither truck driver, nor RDX nor trucks could be traced back.
The same policemen guard EVMs and security staff of BEL is not order of magnitude different.
So consider a truck which is taking EVMs from BEL to Collector's office in some district. The journey could be at least a day long. How difficult it is for CIA to bribe the truck driver and guard, and allow four CIA agents to add dishonest display in EVMs? It is trivially easy. So one CIA agent can can get into truck containing say 1000 EVMs and replace display in 2 minutes per EVM = 2000 minutes. Four agents can replace display in 500 minutes = say 10 hours. So BEL can ship honest EVMs, and CIA can convert a big portion of them into dishonest EVMs.
Or better, CIA can send its agents in the warehouse which stores EVMs and get display replaced in the warehouse itself. Or CIA agents can put a cap on memory inside EVMs in warehouse. That cap can be capable of taking candidate number via radio waves, and thus alter the contents of memory after voting ends.
Or much better, if BEL had outsourced the manufacturing of display,
CIA can "convince" BEL chief to outsource the display manufacturing to a CIA outfit in India. So no agent needs to be sent to warehouse of truck.
Or better, just replace the chips after lock bits are set. One box will contain about 2000 chips. So by replacing 50 boxes, one can rig 100,000 EVMs.
There are simply too many ways to rig EVMs (dishonest display, putting cap on memory which can candidate number via radio waves, putting chip which favors CandidateNo = (nCandidates mod 5) + 1 and adjusting nCandidates in DC's office) The beauty of all these ways and means is that it needs much much fewer people. In case of paper ballots, one needs at least 2 LOCAL criminals per booth
. The leaders dont have 1000s of criminals to spare, and so booth capturing can at worst happen in 500-600 out of 750,000 booths across India. Whereas remote rigging can reach as many 100,000 booths across India.
If someone has rigged EVMs in India or Gujarat, it is not Congress nor BJP nor Sonia nor Modi. It is CIA (CIA = covert operations body of MNCs and Christianists). Congress and BJP dont have ability to rig EVMs. And Congress and BJP are too weak to hide the scam. The leaders of BJP, Congress, CPM etc are all cowards and have no courage to pull such a scam. Only CIA is capable of pulling this scam, and only MNCs are capable of controlling media-owners and judges to hide the scam. MNCs today own most media-owners and can tell all media-owners to support EVMs by ridiculing anti-EVM people. And MNCs can also force all HCjs and SCjs to dismiss all petitions against EVMs, and not to issue orders to sell EVMs to public.
So judges, policemen, EC, Sonia, MMS etc have taken a clear stand -- no activist will get an EVM and if he tries to touch and EVM, we will throw him into prison !! Now try proving that displays in existing EVMs are dishonest without touching an EVM !! See, you can prove that displays are dishonest. Hence all the displays are honest !! Hence EVMs cant be rigged !!
(Added later : Last I heard, policemen are summoning employees of Hari Prasad's company and also summing the family members of employees of his company. AFAIT, CEC via IPS is forcing key employees to leave the company so that Hari Prasad gets financially ruined. If this is true, it is important that we citizens expel CEC from his position).
