Guwahati, April 18: An estimated 75 per cent of the voters cast their votes during repolling today (April 18) in six polling centres of three Assam assembly constituencies of Rangia, Bhawanipur and Udalguri.

Election office sources said the electors cast their votes peacefully between 7 am and 3 pm at the six polling centres where the Election Commission had ordered re-polling following disturbances on April 11 during the second phase of the hustings.

At Rangiya, 83.43 per cent voters cast their ballot at voting stations number 53, 54, 55 and 56 where polling on April 11 was suspended following clashes between the voters and BSF men leading to injury of 22 persons during police lathicharge.

At North Udalguri Nagar Prathimik Vidyalaya in Udalguri constituency, 62 per cent voters exercised their franchise after polling was stopped on April 11 when miscreants had tried to rig the polls.

In Bhawanipur constituency, 80 per cent of the electorate cast their votes at polling station Number 111 in Geruwapara, where voting was stopped due to malfunctioning of electronic voting machines (EVMs) during the second phase of polling.
