Gujarat chief electoral officer (CEO) B B Swain said to media, that the mobile phone of the complainant had through Bluetooth detected a device marked as "ECO 105" which led to the confusion.

Jain said experts found that the cell phone was actually connected to the bluetooth of a polling agent's mobile. "A polling agent named Manoj Singrakhiya was carrying the mobile phone", Swain said. Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said, "Congress is searching for an excuse even before the results are out, as it stares at a loss in the elections".
