2nd phase LS polls:Voting peaceful except Jharkand
The second phase of Lok Sabha polls took place today across 12 states in the country. By and large the voting is peaceful except certain incidents of violence in Naxal-infested Jharkhand.
A magistrate Rajendra Prasad and a police constable, who were going to their assigned polling station, were wounded when Naxals lobbed a bomb at their vehicle near Dadi-Srirampur village in Giridh district, about 200 kms from Ranchi, in Jharkhand.
In another incident, security forces repulsed a Naxalite bid to disrupt polling in Bansdera in East Singhbhum.
Brisk polling was reported from all the 140 constituencies spread across 12 states in the second round of the five-phased elections which would end at 1700 hrs.
In Andhra Pradesh, the voting was reported at around 70% in the 20 LS constituencies and 140 Legislative Assembly seats.
