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.
