GUWAHATI - Separatist rebels shot dead five people at a polling station in India’s remote northeastern state of Manipur during local elections on Saturday, police said. The heavily armed rebels killed three polling station officials and two others as they sprayed the station with bullets in Thangpi, a village south of the state capital Imphal, authorities said. “The militants opened random fire at the voting centre, killing three polling centre officials, a paramilitary trooper and a civilian,” police chief Priya Singh told AFP.
