EC seeks periodic reports on Bengal poll violence

Kolkata, May 2 (IANS) To curb poll-related violence in West Bengal, the Election Commission on Monday instructed the state police chief to submit detailed reports of pre, post and post poll violence at periodic intervals.

“The Election Commission has instructed the director general of police to monitor all pre, post and poll day violence and submit the incident wise detailed report at periodical intervals for each of the phases. This will be monitored directly by the EC from its Delhi headquarters,” a poll panel official said here.

A seven-year-old girl was injured when she was beaten up allegedly by miscreants allied to West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress after her grandfather, a Communist Party of India-Marxist supporter, voted in the fifth phase of the assembly polls in the southern outskirts of the city.
