Thiruvananthapuram: Woman activist Bindu Ammini, who had managed to enter the Sabarimala temple last year was attacked with pepper spray on Monday when she was on her way to the shrine along with Pune-based activist Trupti Desai.

Ammini and Desai had reached the Kochi commissioner office to seek police security for their visit after arriving at the Kochi International Airport in the wee hours of Tuesday along with five other women. It is said that a group of right-wing members got into an altercation with Ammini and during the course of the argument she was attacked with pepper spray. She has been taken to a hospital. Ammini is a lecturer at Kannur University in Kerala.

It may be recalled that in 2018, the Supreme Court opened the doors of the temple for women of all ages through its order. The shrine of the celibate god Ayyappa in Sabarimala had remained closed for the women of reproductive age for centuries.
