Earlier, Kerala high court had questioned the state government as to why top police officers, accused in criminal cases, have been deployed in Sabarimala. Referring to inspector general (IG) Vijay Sakhare and  superintendent of police (SP) Yatheesh Chandra, the court observed, “What was the point of deploying police officers, who do not know how to read and write Malayalam.”

The court was considering a batch of petitions, demanding to revoke Section 144 in Sabarimala. The court also asked the government to submit the details of the two police officers deployed in Sabarimala.
