Pathanamthitta: Delhi-based New York Times reporter Suhasini Raj, along with her colleague, a foreign national, managed to go past the Pamba gateway, just before the climb to the hilltop Sabarimala temple here, but the duo was stopped midway by angry protestors, who formed a human wall before her. The two were then forced to go back from the shrine, by angry protestors, on Thursday. The temple doors opened on Wednesday after the Supreme Court's historic judgement of allowing entry to women of all ages. However, there were protests opposing the entry of women and protestors clashed with police and also attacked journalists.
