Jaipur: A clash between villagers and police that also left many media persons injured in Rajasthan's Dausa marred voting even as over 47 percent of the eight million-plus electors cast their ballots till 3.30 p.m. in five constituencies in the state's second and final phase of polling.


"Till 3.30 p.m., as per tentative information received, we have recorded 47.20 percent polling in these five constituencies," an official told IANS.
