Theni: Overjoyed by the astounding performance of AIADMK which is set to win over 190 seats in the 234-member Tamil Nadu Assembly, an ardent fan of Jayalalithaa on Friday cut off her tongue to fulfill a religious vow at a temple near here, police said.

Devotees at Sri Veerapandi Goumariamman temple, 7 km from here, were shocked when Sangeetha (27), who had vowed to cut off her tongue if the Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK was voted to power, severed it with a knife, police said.

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