Voting has begun in the battleground of Varanasi as India votes in the final phase of its mammoth general election.

The main opposition BJP's leader Narendra Modi remains a front-runner in the seat, but is being challenged by Arvind Kejriwal of the new anti-corruption Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Voting is taking place in 41 seats on Monday in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal.
