Frustrated members of the public made police reports on the indelible ink at the Johor Jaya Police Station, yesterday.
They said they had voted at their respective polling centres in the earlier part of the day, but when they washed their hands, the indelible ink on their index fingers came off.
Businessamn Baskaran Balakrishnan, 39, said he voted at 2.30 pm in Sekolah Agama, Taman Desa Cemerlang.
He claimed that after voting he cleaned his finger with a cloth and the ink was gone. He had gone to the Johor Jaya Police Station to make his reports with some others.
Together with him were Alahandiran, 37, an operation manager working in Singapore, his hotel manager wife, Sashi, 39 and businessman Thachayine, 39.
