Ranchi, December 7
An estimated 63.36 per cent votes were cast on Saturday in the second phase of election for the Assembly in Jharkhand where one person killed was in firing by security personnel near a polling booth.
The voting figure is likely to go up as reports from remote places are awaited.
Polling in the 20 constituencies had begun at 7 am amid tight security. It ended at 3 pm in 18 of them while in the rest two — Jamshedpur (East) and Jamshedpur (West) — the polling ended at 5 pm, Election Commission sources said.
Raghubar Das, CM, was in the fray in Jamshedpur (East). Jharkhand Additional DGP Murari Lal Meena said the man was killed when RAF men fired on the assailants near booth number 36 in the Sisai constituency for trying to snatch arms. — PTI
