Sabarimala: In a shocking incident a Superintendent of Police beat up an Ayyappa devote, Ganesh, at the holy shrine for questioning a woman. Ganesh doubted that the woman was trying to defile Ayyappa’s abode and questioned her intentions.
This provoked the SP in charge of Sabarimala Sujith Kumar IPS to mercilessly rough up the devotee. Ganesh was left unconscious and the Police tried to flee the spot without providing medical help. However, other Ayyappa devotees rushed to the spot and took the injured devotee to the hospital.
The SP’s cruelty comes on a day the High Court slammed the State police for going slow in the investigation into the destruction of Sabarimala devotees’ vehicles by the police.
