Jumbos pose threat to over 190 polling booths in Meghalaya

Election officials in Meghalaya face an elephantine problem to ensure that voting for the February 23 polls is not disrupted by marauding pachyderms. Election authorities are marking several booths as “sensitive” not from law and order point of view, but because they are vulnerable to possible attacks from elephants. Chief Electoral Officer P Naik said forest guards would keep a watch during the elections in elephant—inhabited areas.
