 "However, the polling process was not hampered and the situation was peaceful now," the SP told PTI.

The village where the clash took place falls in Ferozepur Jhirka assembly constituency in Nuh, she said, adding some old enmity between the two groups was stated to be the reason behind the clash.

 "We have registered an FIR in connection with the incident. Further investigations were on," said Kalia, who visited the incident spot. "I talked to the people there and tried to assure them that we are there to ensure smooth conduct of polling," she said.

There were also reports of a firing incident and minor fights taking place at a few places in Nuh district, but Kalia said these were not related to poll and police was trying to gather details about such incidents. Polling began at 7 AM in all the 90 Assembly constituencies in Haryana and will end at 6 pm.
