Can’t stop media in Sabarimala: Kerala HC tells govt

    Kerala High Court told the government of Kerala that mediapersons cannot be stopped from entering Sabarimala. The people of Kerala have the right to see and hear what is happening in Sabarimala. The state government submitted before the court that there was no attempt to stop the medapersons in the hill shrine. The court asked why the government should worry if everything is transparent.
    The HC’s intervention was in response to a petition filed by GK Suresh Babu, the chief editor of Janam TV. The petition pointed out that Janam TV men was forcefully ousted from Sabarimala during the midnight of November 14.
    The government informed the court that Sabarimala is a highly protected area. It also said, the restrictions on mediapersons happen sometimes for the safety of them. Then the court asked the government: Can’t 15,000-strong police give proper protection to the media?
    Then HC asked the state government to submit an affidavit stating that media will not be stopped at Sabarimala.
