Five women suffered injuries after falling into a drain in India's Puducherry Union Territory on Thursday, as they were set to participate in a road show for Home Minister Amit Shah before the 6 April assembly polls.
They were standing on a slab covering the drain which collapsed, resulting in the accident.
A video of the incident showing locals and police officials helping the fallen women come out of the drain has surfaced on social media.
