A group of  reporters are hiding in a bathroom inside a school building in  Utthar Pradesh, India with Samajwadi workers outside, threatening to break down the door after the counting of election results in the Utthar Pradesh was completed.

The group had assaulted the journalists earlier when a reporter questioned a candidate from the Samajvadi party  about his defeat in today's elections. The police allegedly refused to intervene. The reporters then rushed into the school, which had been converted into a media centre for today's counting of votes. The NDTV crew's camera has been smashed. Vinod Gautam, who reports for NDTV, said, "There are so many of them outside. We don't know how we will go home."

Mr Yadav's party has marched into power in UP today, winning 224 of the 403 seats at stake. Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, who is 72 years old, will embark on his fourth term as chief minister. It is 39-year-old Akhilesh who has powered the stunning verdict, re-positioning the party as a progressive one, focused on development in one of India's most backward states. At a press conference this evening, he said, "This party will have no link to the mafia." In earlier stints in power, the Samajwadi Party was held responsible for a rise in gang wars and crimes, NDTV reported.
