Trivandrum (Kerala) [India], Dec 1 (ANI): Two females of the menstruating age group from Andhra Pradesh, who were on their way to Kerala's Sabarimala temple on Saturday returned midway after facing protests.
The Kerala police said that they were neither informed about this journey nor the women had asked for security. The police added that they have detained three men for blocking their way.
Earlier, activist Trupti Desai was also forced to return to Pune without visiting the holy shrine owing to protests against her visit.
Till now, no woman has entered the hill-top temple despite Supreme Court's September 28 order that lifted the ban on the entry between the age group of 10 to 50 years inside the temple.
The Sabarimala temple and surrounding areas witnessed a string of protests recently over the apex court's decision. (ANI)
