6th round of elections continue in West Bengal amidst violence

New Delhi: The sixth phase of the assembly election is continuing on Thursday morning amid reports of sporadic violence from several areas in West Bengal.

The body of an unknown person was found from a pond in Habra, North 24 Parganas, which had wound marks on it. The incident caused tension among the local people. However, the police are yet to ascertain his identity.

A senior official of the Election Commission of India said, “The voting in all 43 constituencies is largely peaceful. There are no reports of any major violence. “

A local Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader was injured after being allegedly attacked by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers at Kanchrapara in North 24 Parganas. However, the BJP denied the allegations and said that the TMC party was trying to implicate them in a false case.

There were also reports of sporadic violence in Chopra in North Dinajpur district of North Bengal, where police said that some miscreants opened fire. The villagers also alleged that some bombs were hurled at Chopra’s Phulia. Police said, “We have started the investigation. It is not yet known who fired the bullets. ”

Meanwhile, Kovid-19 cases continued to increase in the eastern state. At least 10,784 cases were reported on Wednesday with 58 deaths. There are more than 63,000 active cases in West Bengal.

All political parties, including the BJP and the ruling TMC, have curbed rallies in the state. Voting is going on in nine seats in North Dinajpur, nine in Nadia, 17 in North 24 Parganas and eight in East Burdwan district.
