Sabrimala: Journalist, activist women forced to return

Journalist Kavitha Jakkal and activist Rehana Fathima decided against ascending the hill Friday, fearing violence by protesters who had gathered in large numbers at Nadapanthal. Flanked by police personnel, and wearing protective gear, the women got as far as ‘Marakootam’ – this is where another woman was stopped Thursday – before returning to Pamba.
