Kozhikode: Activist Bindu Ammini who created history with her controversial visit to the Sabarimala temple in Kerala was attacked by an unidentified man in Kozhikode on Wednesday.
Ammini was attacked by the man when she reached Kozhikode north beach in connection with a court case.
Visuals aired by TV channels showed Ammini being attacked by the man and her attempts to resist him. The activist said she was attacked without any provocation.
Speaking to Manorama News, she alleged that the RSS was behind the attack.
"I'm being attacked constantly. So it was not shocking. Around 30 minutes before the incident, I had a feeling that something was likely to happen. I had also informed Koyilandi special branch officer about my fears. But he didn't do anything," she said.
She said the police wanted to arrest her instead of the one who attacked her. She said even after the man was arrested he was charged with only minor and bailable offences.
"I don't expect to get any justice from the Kerala police," she said.
Kozhikode city police said an investigation has been launched into the incident on the basis of her complaint.
Ammini was in news for visiting the Sabarimala temple in 2019 following a Supreme Court order permitting women of all age groups to pray at the hill shrine.
