The police had issued lookout notices against 210 people and registered a case against nearly 2,000. Arrests were made in Ernakulam Rural, Tripunithura Kozhikode, Palakkad, Thrissur, Kottayam and Alappuzha on Wednesday and Thursday.
The Sabarimala shrine, which opened for devotees on October 17 after the Supreme Court verdict, had witnessed violent protests for six days as not a single woman was allowed to enter the temple.
The mob had vandalized police vehicles and KSRTC buses, attacked women journalists covering the protests and heckled women devotees of the previously barred age group.
The police said that more arrests would be made soon and asked the public to send information about the culprits.
Thirty men from Kozhikode, who were allegedly members of Hindutva groups, were arrested on Wednesday for organizing protest marches without prior permissions, fanning violence and causing damage to public property, Manorama online reported. Police said the suspects were later released on bail
