A woman was injured as a clash took place between two groups outside a polling booth in Malaaka village in Nuh district in Haryana’s Mewat region on Monday, a senior police official said.

The official said an argument broke out between a sarpanch and a former sarpanch after which some of their supporters accompanying them clashed.

Stones were also hurled during which a woman was injured, Nuh SP Sangeeta Kalia said.

“However, the polling process was not hampered and the situation is peaceful now,” the SP told PTI.

The village where the clash took place falls in Ferozepur Jhirka assembly constituency in Nuh, she said, adding that an old enmity between the two groups was said to be the reason behind the clash.

“We have registered an FIR in connection with the incident. Further investigation is on,” said Kalia, who visited the spot.

“I talked to the people there and tried to assure them that we are there to ensure smooth conduct of polls,” she said.

There were also reports of a firing incident and minor fights taking place at a few places in Nuh district, but Kalia said these were not related to polls and police were trying to gather details. PTI
