Though villagers had even put up banners announcing their decision to boycott the polls, the police had   removed them.

Local police officials including  Circle Inspector PM Diwaker tried to convince the villagers to cast their votes, but it turned out to be a futile exercise.

The SC, ST community people in Mutluppady and Moodudarkhas in Andaru of Karkala taluk, considered a Naxal affected area, also boycotted the election on similar grounds.
