3 injured in Arunachal poll clash

At least three persons were seriously injured in a clash between supporters of two rival
political parties under Tali assembly constituency in Kurung
Kumey district of Arunachal Pradesh during polling on
Thursday, police said.
    Polling personnel were not among the injured and
voting was underway, an election official said.
    The injured were evacuated by a chopper requisitioned
by the district administration, Director General of Police
(DGP) S B K Singh said.
    District Electoral Officer Santosh Kumar Rai said the
clash occurred between supporters of two political parties,
outside a polling booth at Pipsorang.
    The DEO, however, could not give details about the
political parties whose supporters were involved in the clash
as phone connectivity in the area is very bad.
    "I got the information via wireless message and
details are awaited," Rai added.
