Kerala High Court has asked the State Government to explain why two young women, Bindu and Kanakadurga, visited Sabarimala and whether it was part of their agenda.

The court on Tuesday sought an explanation on the basis of the report submitted by the Sabarimala Special Commissioner on the situation, following the entry of two women. It said the women were taken under police protection which was not proper.The court asked whether Bindu and Kanakadurga were devotees.

Sabarimala was not a place for any kind of demonstration under the government and the police as it was meant for devotees, the court observed. However, the government, represented by the advocate general clarified that the two women were devotees.

But the court was not satisfied with the claim and asked the government to submit an affidavit detailing the entry of the women and the police role in it.
