    The people who wanted to vote were intimidated by extreme violence in terms of stone pelting and terrorist strikes. The government was unable to provide a secure atmosphere for voting.

My family wanted to excercise our democratic franchise but we were too scared to come out and vote. An elderly person of our locality was beaten to pulp by separatist and terrorist gang after casting his vote.
