SRINAGAR: A voter at polling booth in Indian occupied Kashmir (IoK) was manhandled by Indian troops after he refused to cast vote for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Former chief minister IoK and President of the Jammu & Kashmir Peoples Democratic Party Mehbooba Mufti shared a video of the polling station with caption “A voter at polling booth in Jammu was manhandled by the BSF because he refused to cast his vote for BJP.”

She went on to say “Using armed forces at polling stations to coerce people to vote for the BJP shows their desperation and hunger to usurp power by hook or crook.”

Later, the protesting voters outside the polling station raised slogans against the BJP and the Indian troops.

A man recording the video also provided details saying a BSF commander inside the polling station manhandled voter who refused to cast vote for BJP.
