The two women made a history by entering in the Sabarimala temple in Kerala have approached the Supreme Court for police protection.
Kanaka Durga, 39, a Civil Servant and Bindu Ammini, 40, a law lecturer at Kerala’s Kannur University told the Supreme Court that their life is in danger as Durga was assaulted by her relatives. She is undergoing a treatment at a hospital in Perinthalmanna of Malappuram district.
The court will hear the case on Friday. Despite the Supreme Court’s decision to permit women who are in the 10-50 age groups, no children or young women in the barred group had been able to offer prayers at the temple following frenzied protests by devotees and right wing outfits.
These two women’s entry in the Shrine had led to a massive violence in Kerala had led to the arrest of at least 3,000 people. Senior advocate Indira Jaisingh listed the matter before a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice L N Rao and S K Kaul.
