Bhumata Brigade leader Trupti Desai together with five of her associates attempted to visit the Sabarimala temple. They flew into the city and tried to get police protection. However the police turned them away. They then approached the Police Commissioner’s Office and tried to meet the District Police Chief of Kochi city.
While waiting there, one woman Bindu Ammini had gone to the vehicle to get something when she was attacked. The police then sent back the group and informed them that there could be another attack on them. The group therefore aborted their trip for the time being but promised to be back to visit Sabarimala.
