Rush of devotees continued for the third consecutive day at the holy hillock of Sabarimala on Sunday.

The sacred grove of Sabarimala received heavy rain in the past 24 hours. But braving the downpour, hundreds of pilgrims from different parts of the country undertook the pilgrimage to the holy hillock. Many pilgrims had to wait to for hours together in the open barricades leading to the temple premises.

The water level in River Pampa went up by Sunday afternoon and the police stopped the parking of vehicles at the Triveni parking grounds. The rain caused slush to flow into the river course at Pampa-Triveni, hitting the pumping at the KWA drinking water supply scheme at Pampa.

Pumping was stopped for a few hours on Sunday. A 58-year-old pilgrim, K.L.M. Raju from Andhra Pradesh, died of heart attack at Appachimedu. The body was shifted to Pampa.
