Solution

Saroj’s legal right has been violated and she can sue the persons who prevented her from voting

Explanation:

Infringement. The encroachment, breach, or violation of a right, law, regulation, or contract. The term is most frequently used in reference to the invasion of rights secured by Copyright, patent, or trademark. Right endowed upon by law is called legal right. We all have rights and at the same time, we need to ensure that we do not take away or violate someone else's rights. This is our legal duty. When we fail to perform or incorrectly perform our legal duties, we end up violating someone else's rights and in turn commit a  tort. Thus in the case presented before us Saroj's right to vote was infringed and whether or not any damage was caused still she has the right to sue the wrongdoer.   
Hence "Saroj’s legal right has been violated and she can sue the persons who prevented her from voting" is correct.
