    It is leanr that Kerala authorities have decided to deploy women police officers above the age group of 50 to handle the situation that may arise.

    The Sabarimala temple was opened to women between the age group of 10-50 following a September 28 Supreme Court verdict which lifted the ban on entry of women belonging to the menstruating age group in the hilltop shrine. However, the actual time of opening the temple gates for women marked massive protests across the state. Several women, including journalists and activists who attempted to enter the shrine, were forced to return by devotees who protested outside the shrine.
