BJP, Yuva Morcha, Hindu Aikya Vedi and Shiv Sena activists jointly staged a protest march to the Fort and Thampanoor Police Stations which registered cases against 11,000 women who offered Pongala during the Attukal Pongala Festival. Three Police officials were suspended in this regard, today. Tension prevailed in the police station area following the protest march by a large number of agitators as police used mild force to disperse them, police sources said. Meanwhile, the three police officials including a DCP, who registered the case, were suspended from the service immediately by the Government. However, the case was registered following the Kerala High Court verdict banning roadside meetings.

DGP Jacob Punnoose said immediate explanation had been sought and action was taken against Deputy Commissioner of Police PC Mohanan who ordered to file a case.

DGP said the Pongala does not come under the purview of HC order. Meanwhile, various political leaders including CPI(M) and BJP have expressed their protest on the issue. Chief Minister Oommen Chandy told newspersons in Kottayam that Deputy Commissioner of Police Mohanan has been suspended for giving direction to take case against the devotees for staging Pongala at Aattukal Bhagavathi Temple.

FIR in that case was cancelled, the Chief Minister said. UNI DS VV ADB1805 NNNN
