Mathura (UP), Thu, 07 May 2009 ANI

Mathura (Uttar Pradesh), May 7 (ANI): Agitated voters from a village near Mathura in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday smashed windowpanes of several cars belonging to the relatives of a poll candidate who were allegedly distributing money and solicit votes.


The villagers alleged that relations, supporters of Shyam Sundar Sharma, a candidate of the Bahujan Samajvadi Party (BSP) were trying to bribe the electorates with money.


Expressing their anguish, the villagers damaged windowpanes of the cars in which the public figures and others had arrived.


Policemen reached the spot and dispersed the mob and took candidates' brother and other supporters to a safer place.


However, District Magistrate Ramraj Yadav refused to comment by contending that investigations would be done in the matter once more facts are revealed.


"When more facts will be revealed, we will carry forward the investigation. I cannot say anything in this regard unless things get clear," said Yadav.


Villagers also lamented that the supporters had a rifle and they ran away when villagers started breaking window panes.


"They had two bags of money with them. Two people ran away with the bags and a rifle as well. And a few currency notes were kept on the backseat. There were about 2-2.5 lakh rupees. They were distributing money to buy people's votes," said Laxman Singh, a resident. (ANI)
