According to reports, Kerala High Court has taken cognisance of arrests and slammed Kerala Government Pinari Vijay’s government for relentless excess on devotees. Commenting upon plea filed by Suresh Kumar and Anoj Kumar of Sabarimala Achara Samrakshana Samithi, the court warned that the government will have to pay ‘’ heavy price’’ if any innocents are arrested.

Petitioners also claimed in front of the court that police had even harassed devotees, who were merely participating in Lord Ayyappa’s Nama Japa Yajnam.

Sabarimala Protests started after, Supreme Court delivered verdict lifting age-old custom of Sabarimala, which barred women from age of 10-50 from entering the temple. After the verdict, temple opened from October 17 to October 22, and several activists tied to enter the sanctum sanctorum but were stopped by thousands of devotees, who were trying to safeguard the age-old sanctity of the temple. This was followed by vicious man-hunt by  Kerala government, who has made it clear that they will anyhow implement the Supreme Court’s verdict, no matter what means they have to employ.
