Kolkata: The Election Commission has slapped a show cause notice on West Bengal's BJP chief and Lok Sabha candidate Dilip Ghosh for threatening to take off the trousers of a poll panel official who had removed a Ram Navami hoarding containing his poster.

"We have taken notice of his comment. He has been served a show cause notice," an Election Commission official told reporters here.
