Voters headed to the polls  in the climax of India's marathon election, with frontrunner Narendra Modi seeking a crowning victory in the holy city of Varanasi for his right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party.

Modi is standing in the famed pilgrimage site on the banks of the river Ganges in the final phase of the world's biggest election, a contest which has been marred by religious divisions and a vitriolic campaign.

The 63-year-old, expected to become prime minister if the Hindu nationalist BJP and its allies secure a majority when results are announced on Friday, urged residents to turn out in record numbers.
