Bhopal: In a big setback for the BJP, Congress candidate Nilanshu Chaturvedi won the Chitrakoot Assembly bypoll in Madhya Pradesh by over 14,000 votes.

BJP candidate Shankar Dayal Tripathi was a distant second.

Around 65 per cent voting was recorded in the bypoll necessitated following the death of sitting Congress MLA Prem Singh (65).

Singh had won the assembly constituency, bordering Uttar Pradesh, in 1998, 2003 and 2013 elections.

However, he had lost the seat to BJP's Surendra Singh Gaharwar in the 2008 polls.

Though 12 candidates contested the by-election, the main fight was between Chaturvedi and Tripathi.
