It was in the first week of January, Kanaka Durga along with Bindu Hariharan managed to enter the hill temple. She left her place in the second week of December, 2018, for attending a meeting at Thiruvananthapuram. But, on December 24, she attempted to visit Sabarimala with Kozhikode native Bindu. But they were forced to abandon their trip due to strong protest from the part of a section of devotees at Pamba and Sannidhanam. The family of Kanakadurga was reportedly not aware of her plan to visit the hill shrine.
