24X7 security for women who entered Sabarimala shrine: SC

The Supreme Court directs the Kerala police to provide round-the-clock security to the two women who had entered the Sabarimala temple.

A bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices LN Rao and SK Kaul heard the plea filed by two women — Kanakadurga and Bindu Ammini (pictured) today after senior advocate Indira Jaising contended the matter should be heard urgently as one of the women was assaulted by her mother in-law.

The plea had sought round-the-clock security to both the women due to threat to their life for entering into the hilltop shrine.
