Nearing the conclusion of Jharkhand's Lok Sabha elections, the final phase of polling on Saturday drew nearly 70% of the electorate. Official sources confirmed the voting process remained mostly peaceful across Dumka, Rajmahal, and Godda constituencies.

Tragically, a driver assigned to election duty died after falling from a bridge, and a polling official became unwell during the voting hours. Despite these incidents, the voter turnout was buoyant, reaching 69.96%.

Authorities noted several violations of the Model Code of Conduct, with three instances reported and FIRs filed in two cases. However, no significant disturbances were observed, and additional security forces were effectively deployed to maintain order throughout the election process.
