FARUKKHABAD (UP): Some youths today allegedly pelted stones at Louis Khurshid, Congress nominee and wife of Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid, following a dispute over entry of voters at a polling booth.

The incident occurred around 5 PM after some local residents were turned away by the presiding officer at booth number 190 and 191 at Bibipur saying the time for voting was over, police said.

The Congress nominee reached the spot and raised objections with the presiding officer after which waiting voters were allowed inside the polling station.

Meanwhile, some youths present there got agitated and shouted slogans. They later climbed the roof of house to pelt stones at Khurshid.

Security personnel then chased away the trouble makers. No one was injured in stone pelting, they said.

Khurshid later alleged that she was attacked at the behest of BJP and said she would lodge an FIR in this connection.
