Kerala: HC Warns Govt Not to Play to Gallery over Mass Arrests of Shabarimala devotees

Shabarimala: Kerala HC Warns Govt Not to Play to Gallery over Mass Arrests.

The Kerala High Court yesterday, warned the state government not to play to the gallery and harass innocent people amid the mass arrest of Shabarimala devotees, who protested against the Supreme Court verdict allowing women of all ages to worship at the shrine earlier this month.

The division bench of the court, while hearing a petition filed by two devotees, said the government will have to pay a heavy price if it arrested innocent and sought a report from it by Monday, 29 October.

In their plea, the petitioners said the police were arresting innocent devotees who participated in peaceful ‘nama japa yatra’ (hymn singing campaign) and some of them were slapped with non-bailable offences.
