Nashik: The Bhumata Brigade supporters, along with their leader Trupti Desai, were again detained by police in Maharashtra’s Nandur Shingote as they headed towards the Trimbakeshwar temple in Nashik where women are prohibited.

The women activists were also detained yesterday while heading to the temple and were later released. “Why are we being stopped from proceeding to Trimbakeshwar temple? Whatever the police is doing is wrong,” said Desai after being detained.

Desai and her supporters had yesterday vowed to break the age-old rule of not allowing women inside the temple. They have demanded that women be allowed to enter the inner sanctum of Trimbakeshwar temple on the occasion of Maha Shivaratri. The temple trust has maintained that the ban on entry of women is based on tradition, claiming that no objection has ever been raised on the same.
