Women’s fresh bid to reach Trimbakeshwar temple foiled

Women activists, led by Trupti Desai of Bhumata Brigade, fighting for breaking gender bias at places of worship, on Tuesday made a fresh bid to proceed towards Trimbakeshwar temple near here but were detained by police and later allowed to return to Pune.

Desai, who heads Bhumata Brigade, and about 150-175 activists had left Pune for the famous Lord Shiva shrine in a bid to break the ban on entry of female devotees into sanctum sanctorum. They were, however, stopped and detained by the police at Nandurshingote village, about 80 km from the temple town.
