National,Politics, Sun, 30 Nov 2008 IANS

Kupwara, Nov 30 (IANS) Dozens of people, mostly women, Sunday took to the streets and shouted anti-election slogans in a village in Kupwara district during the third phase of polling in Jammu and Kashmir.


The demonstration took place soon after polling stations opened in Trehgam village.



Police said one woman was injured when the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) tried to disperse the protestors, who were demanding suspension of the assembly elections and independence for Kashmir.



Trehgam, about 110 km from the state's summer capital Srinagar, is the ancestral village of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) founder Mohammad Maqbool Butt. He was hanged at New Delh's Tihar jail in 1983.



Polling took place Sunday in five assembly constituencies of Kupwara, Handwara, Lolab, Langate and Karnah in the district.



Sunday's election will decide the fate of 71 candidates, including 31 independents and five women.
