As per a report by The News Minute Durga has been taken to the One Stop Centre in Perinthalmana run by the Social Justice Department on Tuesday after her husband and brother declared she won't be allowed to enter their homes.  Her brother Bharat Bhushan — an RSS worker — alleged that the CPM and Kerala Police conspired to take Durga into the temple. He added that Durga would be allowed to return home only if she made a public apology to Ayyappa devotees and the Hindu community, The News Minute.

Perinthalmanna circle inspector TS Binu told The New Indian Express  Durga has been given adequate security at the shelter home. Led by Perinthalmanna sub-inspector PS Manjith Lal, a 10-member police team has been deployed at the locality, The New Indian Express reported.

Durga was hospitalised on 15 January after she suffered injuries on her head and ear following the alleged beating by her mother-in-law. The 44-year-old approached Perinthalmanna police on Monday after she left the hospital from where she was taken to the nearby One Stop Centre.  Earlier, the Supreme Court had ordered around the clock security to Durga and Bindu Ammini, the other woman of menstruating age who entered Sabarimala. Durga and Bindu offered prayers at Sabarimala temple on 2 January. However, according to reports, Durga's family was not aware of her plan to visit the hill shrine.
