Pamba: The Kerala Police have stepped up security at the base camps of Sabarimala on Saturday as reports said more women activists might try to enter the hill shrine. However, there was no confirmation on whether they would be reaching Sabarimala today. Friday morning witnessed huge protests by hundreds of devotees at the entrance of Sabarimala temple that forced the Kerala Police accompanying two women to stop their journey towards the Lord Ayyappa shrine. Meanwhile, Travancore Devaswom Board member KP Sankar Das has slammed tantri Kandaru Rajeevaru for his stand on women's entry at Sabarimala. The priest had said that he would close the temple if women were to enter Sannidhanam. The TDB member said tantri's statement amounts to contempt of court. TDB, the custodian of the Sabarimala temple, has decided to submit a detailed report about the happenings in and around the temple both to the Supreme Court and the Kerala High Court. TDB president A Padmakumar said the board would soon approach their legal counsel for preparing the report on what has been happening in the temple after it opened on Wednesday. Kerala has been witnessing massive protests by Lord Ayyappa devotees opposing the entry of girls and women of menstrual age into the Sabarimala temple since the government decided to implement the apex court order. The devotees had intensified the agitation at the shrine complex and nearby areas including the base camps, Nilakkal and Pamba, since the shrine was opened for the five-day monthly puja on October 17.
