 A team of Nagaland police personnel, assisted by Maharashtra police, Friday arrested Hema Choudhary, an animal rights activist, who allegedly made objectionable remark against Nagas and people from the North East on social media. 

Sources informed Nagaland Post that the team led by one lady officer in the rank of Dy.SP, one inspector and a lady constable was sent to Mumbai and accordingly they arrested Hema Choudhary from her Mumbai residence in Oshiwara locality.

Sources said that a case was already registered against her in Nagaland under section 153A, 153B and 505 of IPC and also under ST and SC Act.

It was learnt that the state police has sought “transit remand” and was awaiting the court’s order. Once the remand is granted, Choudhary will be brought to Nagaland for further interrogation, sources said.

“On Friday, a Nagaland police team informed us about the case and then went to Choudhary’s residence and arrested her. She will be taken to Nagaland for further probe,” said senior inspector Dayanand Bangar of Oshiwara police station told PTI.
