High Court, Bail pleas, Sabarimala protesters

Kochi : The Kerala High Court on Wednesday will consider the bail plea of the protesters, who were arrested during the Sabarimala Protests in Nilakkal and Pampa.

The police have arrested over 3,500 people and registered close to 540 cases. Around 100 people are still in judicial custody. Charges of destruction of public property, outraging the modesty of women and obstructing government servants from doing their duty, defying the section 144 imposed in the place were also slapped against them.

The protesters prevented 12 women from entering the shrine. Similar protests were seen when the temple opened for a day on November 5 when three women were forced to retuen without offering prayers.
