Death toll up to 12

by Ericka Sequeira

The West Bengal panchayat polls concluded on 14 May 2018. The end voter turnout stood at 72.5 per cent. However, the number is likely to rise as 450,000 voters were still lined up in the queue outside the polling booths to cast their vote across several parts of the state. The death toll due to violence during the polling has gone up to 12. Counting of votes for the polling will take place on 17 May.
