He alleged that BJP candidate Mina Devi Purohit was held captive at Maheswari school for nearly two hours.

He also added, “In booth 34 of ward no. 4, the BJP agent of the booth was allegedly molested by the Presiding officer of the booth during the elections.”

BJP has demanded the Election Commission to cancel the polls and order fresh polling. In a memorandum to the State election Commissioner, BJP has alleged that the police who was scheduled to protect the common voters were hand in gloves with the ruling goons.

Reacting to the elections BJP state observer Siddharth Nath Singh said that the police have acted as TMC agents during the elections and TMC has conducted desperate rigging to win the elections.
