TROUBLE MARS BALLOTING IN INDIA

Election-related violence was reported across India on Saturday as an estimated 77 million people chose members of parliament in the second part of the five-day polls.

Party activists stole ballot papers or poured water into ballot boxes in an attempt to disrupt the voting in eight states where elections were conducted, said Deputy Election Commissioner Subhas Pani. But compared with past elections, Saturday's polling was relatively calm, he said. "Overall, it was peaceful," Pani told reporters.
