Shoot-at-sight orders were on Tuesday issued against booth capturers or those attempting to damage EVMs in Papumpare district and in the state capital during the assembly polls in Arunachal Pradesh.

This was decided at a meeting of the district magistrates and police superintendents of the two districts, a senior official said.

The order was given in view of some incidents during the May Lok Sabha elections in Itanagar.

The polling percentage in the state varied from 12 to 24 during the first few hours of voting, which was going on by and large peacefully.

Meanwhile, for the first time in the country video feeds were being webcast from three polling stations in Konsa East constituency in Tirap district for people to see the peaceful polling and check bogus voting.
