A day after six people on election duty were rescued from a lift at a school in Maharashtra's Thane district, three more poll staffers got stuck in the same elevator as it malfunctioned again on Monday, an official said.
The three poll staffers were using the lift in Sahakar Prasarak Mandal School at Kalwa town here in the morning when it got stuck on the building's fourth floor after developing a technical snag, Thane civic body's regional disaster management cell chief Santosh Kadam said.
The fire brigade personnel rushed to the spot and managed to rescue those stuck in the lift after around 15 minutes, he said.
The lift was being used by the poll staff to reach the classrooms where the election material was kept, Kadam said.
On Sunday, six poll staffers got stuck in the school's lift for around 40 minutes before being rescued, he said.
