Theni (TN): Thrilled by brilliant performance of All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) which won over 190 seats in the 234-member Tamil Nadu Assembly, a woman chopped off her tongue on Saturday to fulfill a religious vow at a temple.

Devotees at Sri Veerapandi Goumariamman temple were shocked when Sangeetha, an ardent fan of Jayalalithaa, who had vowed to cut off her tongue if the AIADMK was voted to power, severed it with a knife, police said.

Hailing from Ramanathapuram, Sangeetha was rushed to hospital and doctors said they were confident of suturing back the severed tongue.
