Influential villagers blocked a wedding procession in Bihar after the rival side didn’t honour their appeal to vote for a particular candidate in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Police said a group of villagers blocked the wedding procession at Methaura village in Sakra block of Muzaffarpur district on Monday, leading to strong protests.

This angered the accused persons who didn’t allow the groom side to take out the marriage procession and blocked their way, resulting in violent protests.

Reports said it took eight hours for the police to restore normalcy in the areas. Muzaffarpur went to polls in the fifth round on May 6.

A similar incident had earlier been reported from neighbouring Jharkhand state where a Muslim woman was beaten up by her husband after she had voted independently, ignoring instruction from her husband to vote for a particular candidate.
