Polling begins in J&K amid tight security

In Leh, polling was going on at a slow pace. Although the polling started at 8 am, voters came out of their homes half an hour late due to the severe cold sweeping Ladakh region.

Similar reports were received from Zanskar and Nobra assembly constituencies.
