After violence, EC bans entry of politicians in Cooch Behar for next 72 hrs

The fourth phase of West Bengal Assembly elections saw 76.14 per cent voter turnout even as multiple incidents of poll violence rocked the polling process in the state. The Election Commission had to adjourn voting in Polling Station 126 of Sitalkuchi seat in Cooch Behar after five people were killed in poll-related violence in two separate incidents. The poll body has also asked the Centre to deploy 71 additional companies of CAPFs for the conduct of remaining four phases of polls.
