KP Sasikala Teacher, being taken into police custody at Sabarimala

The Police arrested Hindu Aikyavedi president K P Sasikala Teacher at Marakkoottam on her way to Sabarimala Darshan. She was going for darshan after observing 41 days vruta; she carried traditional irumudikettu. She was stopped at Marakkoottam, and she immediately declared that she was observing hunger strike. She requested to grant permission for darshan. She promised that she would come down from Sabarimala and was ready to court arrest. But, by 2.30am police arrested and took her to Ranni police station. She continues her hunger strike there.

 
Hundreds of devotees are congregating in front of the station and chanting namajapam. It is a blatant violation of the right to worship. The same police had given 200 strong security to atheist, sexual anarchist and kiss of love leader Rahna Fathima for facilitating her temple visit. She was even provided police uniform for effective camouflage. Interestingly she had claimed that she was carrying used sanitary napkin in her fabricated irumutikkettu.
 
Police have also arrested Hindu Aikya Vedi state general secretary Brahmachari Bhargavaram, Shabarimala Tradition Protection convener Prithvipal and BJP's SC/ST Morcha state president Adv. P. Sudheer.
 
The state observes dawn-to-dusk hartal in the state in protest against the brutal police raj against Hindu leaders and devotees.
