A councillor has been arrested in Greater Manchester following allegations of electoral fraud.
Councillor Ahmed serves the Werneth ward
Khurshid Ahmed, 48, a Liberal Democrat councillor on Oldham Council, was interviewed by police on Tuesday.
He was questioned on suspicion of forgery and providing false information to the electoral register officer.
Greater Manchester Police said a 48-year-old man from Oldham was arrested on Tuesday and released on bail until July.
Mr Ahmed represents the Werneth ward of Oldham.
A spokesman for the local Liberal Democrat group said the councillor had voluntarily reported an issue relating to the electoral roll for his ward to police on Monday.
Mr Ahmed made the approach after it became apparent that something may be wrong with the registration of an elector that he had been asked validate, the spokesman added.
