KOCHI: A woman who was stopped by police on her way to attend ‘Nava Kerala Sadas’ approached the High Court and sought compensation for the erroneous police conduct. L Archana, a native of Kollam Pathanapuram approached the court on Thursday.

The petition of L Archana, a resident of Thalavoor, Pathanapuram, claims that she was stopped by the police for seven hours for wearing a black churidar to the event. Justice Devan Ramachandran's bench adjourned the petition for hearing after a week. On December 18, Archana stayed with her mother-in-law at Randalummoodu to watch the Nava Kerala Sadas.

Archana's husband is a BJP local office bearer. Archana was taken into custody by the police following false information that she was standing to protest when the NKS bus ferrying the Chief minister and other ministers passed by.

The petitioner alleges that the Kunnicode police took her into custody at 11:30 am and released her at 6:30 pm. The petitioner claims that she is not a member of any political party and demands compensation for the unjust detention. Archana even pleaded with the police that she only intended to attend the function but the officers paid no heed.
