The voting is underway on Wednesday for the West Bengal Panchayat election repolls at 568 booths across 19 districts, which had been ordered by the West Bengal State Election Commission after complaints of violence during the Panchayat Polls conducted on Monday.

Ahead of the Wednesday repolls, the state government and police had been asked to make elaborate security arrangements so that the repolling can be held in a free and fair manner, the SEC official added.

The West Bengal Panchayat polls on Monday were marred by widespread violence, resulting in the death of 12 people and injury to 43 others. An approximate voting percentage of 82.13 percent had been recorded on Monday, an increase from the 73 percent voter turnout in the previous state Panchayat polls.

Due to the violence during the polls on Monday, several candidates reached out to the State Election Commission demanding repolling in their booths.

"I have come here to inform the SEC about yesterday's violence in my locality. Free and fair election did not take place in my area," said Etajul, an independent candidate from Bhangore in South 24 Parganas district said to PTI.

The repolling has been ordered in 10 booths in Hooghly, 28 booths in West Midnapore, 52 booths in Coochbehar, 63 booths in Murshidabad, 60 booths in Nadia, 59 booths in North 24 Parganas, 55 booths in Malda, 73 booths in Uttar Dinajpur, 26 in South 24 Pargans, among others.
