Kanaka Durga, one of the two women who made history by entering Sabarimala temple was taken to hospital by police after she alleged that she was attacked by her mother in law but soon after that her mother in law also reached the hospital for treatment. Her mother in law alleged that it was Kanaka Durga who had beaten her. Kanaka Durga ’s brother in law said that there was a minor scuffle when she tried to enter the house with police protection and both were injured in the process. Kanaka Durga was taken to a Taluk hospital at Perinthalmanna in Malappuram district and was taken to another hospital for further check-ups.
The incident happened when Kanaka Durga returned to her home for the first time after entering the shrine. Kanaka Durga and Bindu Ammini were in hiding ever since entering the shrine and had said that they were facing constant threats from protesters. Kanaka Durga’s husband had earlier filed a missing person report and his family had disowned her following her temple entry.
Kanaka Durga and Bindu Ammini decided to visit the temple after the Supreme Court struck down entry ban on women aged between 10 and 50.
