Women activist Trupti Desai has been detained some time ago after she entered Trimbakeshwar temple to offer prayers.

Trimbakeshwar temple, located 28 kms from Nashik, is dedicated to Lord Shiva and women are traditionally prohibited to enter it.

Earlier this month, Trupti along with 150-200 women had taken out a march to Trimbakeshwar temple demanding their right to pray. However, they were detained by police near Pune-Nashik border.
