BENGALURU: The byelection for Lakkasandra ward (146) was held on Sunday. The election was necessitated following the death of corporator Mahesh Babu in a car accident on the Bengaluru-Mysore highway on July 17.

While Sarala C, wife of the deceased Babu, contested from BJP, Adugodi Mohan and Pervez Ahmed contested on Congress and JD(S) tickets, respectively. Three independent candidates -- Rafi Ullah Khan, Sheikh Abdulla and NS Muniraju -- are also in the fray.

Though Sarala could benefit from the sympathy factor, Congress had prepared well for the byelection. The results will be out on November 23.

In the run-up to the bypoll, former deputy CM R Ashok and Jayanagar MLA B N Vijay Kumar from BJP were seen canvassing for Sarala. From Congress, Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee working president Dinesh Gundurao and Mayor Padmavathi campaigned.
