Digital Desk: A charge has been filed against a group for allegedly beating poll officials in Karnataka's Ramanagara district who were supposed to oversee the Milk Producers' Union election.
Reportedly, four people have been charged in the case.
During this incident, at least 250 voting papers were stolen from election workers. A woman was also hurt when the group attacked her as they fled the scene.
On Wednesday, the Hullenahalli Milk Producers' Cooperative Society was slated to elect its director.
