On the second day of the re-opening of the Sabarimala temple, protests continue against the entry of women of menstruating age into the temple. Fresh protests erupted on Tuesday morning when a woman, thought to be in her menstruating age, was heard of being around the temple premises.
The police later informed that the woman who attempted to enter temple premises was a 52-years-old. The lady and her son and the man accompanying them were given police protection and taken to the Sannidhanam police station.
