Non-veg food served on board ship, say Ayyappa devotees

Chennai, Jan 3 (PTI) Tension prevailed for a while near the harbour here when more than 350 Aiyappa devotees, who arrived here today from the Andamans en route to Sabarimala, staged a demonstration alleging that they were “forcibly” served non-vegetarian food on board a ship in which they were travelling during their six-day journey.

The pilgrims also alleged that they were also asked to share seats with women passengers on the ship, police said.

According to the devotees, they objected when they noticed fish and mutton dishes served to them in the ship.

They refused to eat the food and ate just fruits and biscuits during the journey.

BJP State president Pon Radhakrishnan told the devotees that Port Trust authorities had assured him of action against those involved in serving the non-vegetarian food to them.
