Two women officers enter banned area

Two women civil police officers created controversy after allegedly climbing Neelimala early Monday, violating the Sabarimala tradition. Ms Sheeja Beegum and Ms Divya were part of a 12-member civil police team that was deployed at Pamba to prevent women aged between 10 and 50 entering Sabarimala.

“It is confirmed that the two had climbed Neelimala in preliminary enquiry. The allegation is that the duo accompanied agricultural minister K.P. Mohanan and his team of thirty five people from Pamba to Neelimala. The minister’s team consisted eight aged women, including minister’s sister,” ADGP P. Chandrashekeran told this newspaper.
Valsan, SP (Pamba police controller) has been asked to submit a detailed report on the issue at the earliest. Verification of the recorded video clippings will take place to have a clearer picture on the issue, the ADGP added. The row kicked off after pilgrims shouted at the women civil police officers, who were found at Neelimala stretch, during the wee hours on Monday. It is learnt that Riyad Mohammed, circle inspector of the police, directed the two to escort the team.
