India's riot victims fight fear of voting

Muzaffarnagar's displaced victims of communal violence turn out to vote amid tight security presence.

    Security has been stepped up in the Indian city of Muzaffarnagar where tensions are still high between Muslims and Hindus.

    Last year, dozens died in communal violence and thousands, mainly Muslims, were made homeless.

    Despite fears of further violence, many of the city's displaced have returned to cast their vote.
