An amount of Rs. 1.57 lakh was recovered from an Innova car which caught fire at Suryapet in Nalgonda district. The money is believed to belong to a contestant and a case was registered. A pregnant woman sustained minor injuries when a SI tried to disperse a mob that gathered at Venkatapuram village of Mahbubnagar district. Villagers became furious and stopped polling.
