Jena had entered booth No-10 of Kadampal panchayat under Dharmasaal block in the district yesterday to cast her vote, they said.

When the polling officials told her that she could not cast her vote as her name was not in the voters list, Jena allegedly tore some ballot papers and threw them inside the ballot box in the booth in a fit of rage, they said.
