Sreesanth offers `thulabharam` ritual
Kochi: Disgraced India pacer S Sreesanth, out on bail after being arrested in the IPL spot fixing case, on friday offered `thulabharam`, a ritual, at the famous Sree Poornathrayeesa temple of Lord Vishnu at nearby Tripunithura Friday morning.
`Thulabharam` is an important ritual in temples in Kerala in which devotees sit in a balance and offer coconut, banana, sugar or jaggery equal to their body weight. The suspended Rajasthan Royals player was weighed in `kadli` plantain.
His parents-- Shantakumaran Nair and Savithri Devi and brother-in-law and Malaylam playback singer Madhu Balakrishnan accompanied him to the temple.
The Kerala star, who has claimed innocence, then left for Lord Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala.
Sreesanth, arrested along with two other teammates on charges of spotfixing, was released from Tihar jail on June 11 on bail after 27 days in custody.
