Sonia Ali Raza had filed a petition before SC in which she had claimed that RO was a Mureed (follower) of the shrine of elder of Pir Qutab Ali Baba so he allegedly rigged the polls in favour of Pir Qutab Ali Baba after opening bags and her votes were double-stamped to get them reject and to declare him winner.
