There were no reports of any untoward incident and people voted peacefully to elect its 60-member assembly.

The killing of an NCP candidate by militants after which a top rebel leader was gunned down did not adversely affect electioneering in the Garo Hills , where polling was peaceful amid high voter turnout.

Seniors too joined in the electoral process with a centurion stealing the show at a city polling booth.
