Darjeeling (West Bengal) [India], March 28 (ANI): A Trinamool Congress (TMC) Yuva Morcha leader's car was allegedly vandalised in Darjeeling on Saturday night.
According to TMC, the party's Darjeeling district Yuba Morcha president Kuntal Roy's car was attacked by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) goons last night.
"Many important papers relating to the polls are missing. BJP backed goons are involved in the incident," Roy told ANI.
Meanwhile, BJP has denied all the allegations.
"BJP does not believe in this kind of culture. It is the result of their internal fight," Raju Saha, BJP district general secretary Darjeeling told ANI.
The first phase of the West Bengal Assembly elections concluded with an estimated 79.79 per cent voter turnout on Saturday.
"Apart from a few sporadic incidents, the polling was peaceful," Chief Electoral Officer Aariz Aftab told media persons on Saturday after the conclusion of phase-I polls.
In the first phase, 30 seats covering all assembly constituencies from the districts of Purulia and Jhargram and a segment of Bankura, Purba Medinipur and Paschim Medinipur went to polls to decide on the electoral fate of 191 candidates, including 21 women.
