    The Union Territory of Puducherry along with four states – Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Assam and West Bengal - are in the throes of election fever for the Assembly Elections in India that kicked off on 27 March.

    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.

    Shah, who is also a senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, is in Puducherry on a one-day visit to woo voters.
