The Election Commission Saturday adjourned voting in Polling Station 126 of Sitalkurchi seat in Cooch Behar after a clash between political workers and subsequent firing allegedly by CISF officers led to the death of five people in two separate incidents.

While a first-time voter was shot dead by miscreants in Sitalkuchi in the morning, four people were killed just before noon, allegedly when central forces were forced to open fire after they were attacked.

Approximately 16.65% turnout was recorded till 11 am in Bengal during polling for the fourth phase of the West Bengal Assembly elections.
