Case against BJP leader Tamilisai for protesting against Kerala CM in Chennai

Chennai: A case has been registered against BJP Tamilnadu president Tamilisai Soundararajan for protesting against the Kerala Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan, for enabling two women of menstruating age to worship in the Sabarimala Ayyappa Temple yesterday.

Two women, Bindu and Kanakadurga, accompanied by a posse of policemen, sneaked into the Ayyappa Temple and had darshan around 3.45 am on Wednesday. This led to large-scale protests and violence in Kerala, leading to the death of a man in stone-pelting.

Today in Chennai, the BJP State president led a protest at Pallavaram, denouncing the Kerala Chief Minister. A case was registered against her and 150 BJP cadres under three sections of the IPC by the Pallavaram police.

Following the attack on Kerala government-run hotel on Greams Road in Chennai, on Wednesday night by unidentified persons, a police official said a probe was on to ascertain if it was a fallout of the developments at Sabarimala. Nevertheless, security has been beefed up for the hotel.
