The Bombay High Court on Friday rejected an application seeking recall of an order of the court, where it had observed that women cannot be prohibited from entering places of worship that allow unhindered access to men.

The court had earlier reserved its order on maintainability of several intervention applications filed seeking recall of the order passed in relation to the Shani Shingnapur temple.
