(Srinagar, Apr, 09,2017):Seven people were killed and several injured when security forces opened fire on stonepelting mobs that stormed polling station in Budgam district in the Lok Sabha constituency today.

A total of 6.5 percent voting was recorded in Srinagar Lok Sabha bypolls on Sunday.Â

Hundreds of protestors stormed a polling station at Pakherpora in ChrareSharief area of Budgam district and ransacked the building, officials said.

Speaking about the violence in Kashmir, NC chief Farooq Abdullah said, 'Elections should have been peaceful today, this government has failed in giving a peaceful atmosphere for people to come and vote.'
