Mumbai Police on Friday registered a case against Bhumata Brigade president Trupti Desai for taking out a protest without permission.
According to reports, the Case has been registered in Tardeo station.
After her successful campaigns to break bar on entry of women in some Hindu temples, Bhumata Brigade chief Trupti Desai on Thursday took her movement for gender equality to the famous Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai but stopped short of going into the shrine, avoiding a showdown with the protesters who had gathered to block her.
Police whisked her off to safety shortly after she reached near the dargah, as angry men and women laid siege to her vehicle.
As tempers cooled down, Desai and her supporters again approached the dargah’s entrance, but only to be greeted again with full-throated slogans, banners and placards asking her to stop her “political stunts” and leave.
A minor scuffle took place between police and both pro- and anti-Desai groups near the entrance in the evening, following which the Haji Ali Dargah Trust decided to exercise caution and shut the main gates two hours before the scheduled time of 10 p.m.
Later, Trupti alleged that Police used force while detaining her with the women brigade.
