India election: Exit polls predict Modi win

A number of exit polls are suggesting that Narendra Modi, the leader of India's main opposition BJP, is on course to win the general election.

Polls ended on the final day of voting on Monday. The Election Commission said voter turnout was a record 66.38%.
