West Bengal 3rd phase begins with murder

Thu, Apr 21, 2016, 10:47 AM
The need for six-phase polls in West Bengal stands justified as the third phase of the poll began on Thursday when a CPM supporter, Shahidul Islam, was killed by a Trinamul mob who indulged in firing bullets and exploding bombs. The incident occurred at Domkal in Murshidabad district.

Polling was taking place in 62 constituencies, including seven in Kolkata, today. There are 418 candidates in the fray, including 34 women. The constituencies are spread over Burdwan, Nadia, Murshidabad and North Kolkata.

Sixty-one of the 418 candidates are crorepatis, 80 are facing criminal cases, including 65 who are involved in criminal cases such as murder and rape.

The Domkal murder occurred as soon as polling began. The police have already identified as many as 4094 trouble makers.
