A polling station in Ladaigarh located near Nagaland-Assam border which was “forcibly” stopped by armed Assam Police registered nil vote cast Thursday. A team of armed Assam Police reportedly prevented the polling parties from setting up the polling station initially and occupied the building in Ladaigarh village under 49 Tamlu A/C, Longleng. State Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) informed that following the disturbance created by the Assam Police, the matter was immediately taken up with the Election Commission and the Assam counterpart. The EC had given a clear decision that polling stations created before the Supreme Court imposed ban. Since Ladaigarh polling station was created in 1972, the polling station was shifted to nearby LP school building but the 908 voters under the same polling station failed to turn up and cast their vote for reason not known. In the past elections, polling was conducted without any problems in the same Ladaigarh polling station the CEO said. He also maintained that Assam counterpart had claimed that the same villagers had enrolled themselves in the electoral roll under Assam Borola polling station. However, it was not known whether the villager had cast their vote under Assam side on Thursday. Correspondent
