    Assam Election 2021: Third phase polling largely peaceful

    Assam Assembly Election 2021: The third and last phase of the state election in Assam which is underway amidst tight security in 40 constituencies spread across 12 districts was largely peaceful despite sporadic incidents of violence and disturbances in some areas. There were reports of a clash between two groups of people over some issues at a polling station at Dighaltari lower primary school at Golakganj. Police resorted to lathicharge and firing in the air to control the situation but none was injured. The polling at the booth was stopped for a brief period and resumed soon. At a booth at Guptipara in Bilasipara West constituency security personnel were attacked by a group of people over distribution of free masks. Here too the police resorted to lathicharge when the attackers threw stones at the polling station.

    As a result voting at the polling station was interrupted for about half-an-hour but later resumed normally. In a polling booth in Bongaigaon, there was lathi charge by the police when a huge crowd arrived. Another polling station in the same constituency witnessed commotion when the presiding officer went to help a differently abled person to cast his vote. The situation was brought under control immediately by the police. In another incident police detained at least two persons from a polling booth at Kamrup Academy Higher Secondary School in Guwahati for allegedly distributing inside it BJP pamphlets carrying minister Siddhartha Bhattacharya's pictures. Around 10 people have been detained from different constituencies where voting is on. EVM malfunctioning was reported in several polling centers and voting in them resumed after the machines were replaced. (PTI)
