Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Thursday said that the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) should allow Sabarimala devotees to have darshan only by booking through virtual queue or spot booking system.
The direction came after the TDB informed the court that a total of 1.19 pilgrims have had darshans without booking so far.
The division bench comprising Justice Anil K Narendran and Justice PG Ajithkumar stressed to arrange parking facilities for maximum vehicles at centres in Nilakkal.
The court also sought explanation from the government, TDB, chief police coordinator and KSRTC on the report submitted by the special commissioner regarding the pilgrim rush in Sabarimala.
Meanwhile, the TDB informed that a special queue will be arranged for the elderly, differently abled, children and women.
The arrangements to regulate the crowd should not trouble the devotees, added the court.
