Malappuram: Perinthalmanna police have registered a case against Kanakadurga who allegedly attacked her mother-in-law. Reports had stated that Kanakadurga who reached her house on January 15 after Ayyappa darshan was allegedly beaten up by her mother-in-law and was admitted to Perinthalmanna taluk hospital.

Now Kanakadurga's mother-in-law, Sumathi has come forward and filed a case against her daughter-in-law claiming that Kanakadurga had attacked her. 

In a video released on Wednesday, a Yuva Morcha activist alleged that the complaint lodged by Kanakadurga, one of the two women who entered Sabarimala on January 2 triggering violent protests were fake. He also said that information stating that her husband’s relatives attacked her is incorrect. The activist went on to say that it was Kanakadurga who attacked her mother-in-law Sumathi when she reached home on Tuesday morning.

The Yuva Morcha activist claimed that Kanakadurga fabricated the case in order to enter the house where Sumathi, an Ayyappa devotee, is staying. He said Sumathi was attacked in front of the police. He added that Kanakadurga's family was against her entering Sabarimala and she had stayed away from her house for several weeks because of the family’s opposition to her activism. He even offered legal help to Sumathi.

On January 2, Kanakadurga along with another woman, Bindu entered the Sabarimala temple with the help of the state government and police. This triggered off a series of mass protests in the state and caused a state-wide hartal.
