A man in Bihar divorced his wife for voting for Laloo Prasad Yadav's Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in general elections.

Irfan divorced Sehra in Arkatha village of Munger Lok Sabha constituency following a heated argument in their house at the end of polling on Wednesday.

Sehra apparently returned from the polling centre and told her husband that she had voted for 'lantern' -- the RDJ election symbol.

Irfan, a supporter of the Janata Dal (United), was furious.

He declared he was divorcing Sehra. The couple have grown up sons and daughters.

Villagers described Sehra as a 'hardcore admirer' of Laloo Prasad Yadav, who is popular in rural Bihar for his simple lifestyle.

Last month, after the first phase of elections April 20, a woman ended her life in Bihar after her husband did not allow her to vote for Railway Minister Nitish Kumar.
