Malegaon: Congress's Tahira Rashid Shaikh was elected as the Mayor of Malegaon Municipal Corporation today.

Shaikh defeated NCP's Rabia Shakil Ahmed by 42 votes. Shaikh polled 52 votes, against Rabia's 10.

'Tisara Mahaj' group's Jamil Ahmed Ansari got elected as the Deputy Mayor, defeating NCP's Ajiju Rehman Iqbal.

Twelve corporators of Shiv Sena abstained from voting while Janata Dal (Secular)'s four corporators staged a walk-out to protest murder of terror suspect Quateel Siddiqui at Yerawada jail last week.

Congress, with 25 corporators, is the biggest group in the 80-member house. Tisara Mahaj has 19 corporators, followed by Shiv Sena's 11.
