Thiruvananthapuram: Bindu from Kozhikode and Kanakadurga from Malappuram, who entered the Sabarimala shrine on January 2, have moved the Supreme Court seeking lifetime security.
The duo filed a plea in the Supreme Court saying that they are facing life threats after trekking to Sabarimala shrine and so that they sought full-time security.
The advocates of the duo directly met the Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and requested that the court consider their plea urgently. Following that, the Chief Justice had instructed the apex court to consider the plea on January 18. The plea filed in the apex court had explained the protests staged against the two. The plea has also mentioned that the situation is such that the two cannot live in Kerala after trekking to Sabarimala.
Meanwhile, 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 the 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.
On January 2, Kanakadurga and Bindu entered the Sabarimala temple with the help of the state government and police. This triggered a series of mass protests in the state.
