West Bengal: A video has surfaced on the internet showing an EVM thrown in a pond on Saturday morning. According to a report in the Times of India, the video originates from polling booth numbers 40 and 41 in Kultali, South 24 Parganas of West Bengal which falls under the Jaynagar Lok Sabha constituency.

Few polling agents were reportedly denied to sit in the polling booth and hence, the mob barged into the polling station and threw the voting machine in the pond, according to reports.

The seventh and final phase of polling in the largest festival of democracy started on Saturday as voting started in the last 57 parliamentary constituencies at 7 am across seven states and the Union Territory of Chandigarh.

The seventh phase marks a grand finish to the world's largest polling marathon that began on the 19th of last month and has already covered six phases and 486 Lok Sabha seats.

According to the Election Commission of India, over 10.06 crore electors including approximately 5.24 crore male, 4.82 crore female and 3574 third gender electors are expected to exercise their franchise.

Ahead of voting, mock polls were conducted at various polling booths in the country, like in West Bengal's Jadavpur and Rashbehari Assembly constituency in South Kolkata.

The seven States in which polling is scheduled include Bihar, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and the Union Territory of Chandigarh. Polling for the remaining 42 Assembly Constituencies of the Odisha State Legislative Assembly will also take place simultaneously.
