Haokip, who works for a Myanmar-based rights body was arrested from Delhi for alleged objectionable posts on social media. Soon after landing at the Imphal airport, Haokip was taken to the Imphal West police station and will be produced in court anytime now.
Haokip was arrested by a joint team of Manipur and Delhi police on May 24th.
Haokip had yesterday tendered an unconditional apology for putting up mistakenly defaming the good image of freedom fighter Rani Gaidinliu in a social media post in November 2021. Haokip said that the post was put up unintentionally and that he did not expect it to provoke serious consequences and hurt the sentiments of the people.
It may be mentioned that Churachandpur district on Wednesday witnessed violent protests demanding the release of activist Mark Thangmang Haokip. Haokip who is the President of the Manipur chapter of an organisation called the International Human Rights Association was arrested by a joint team of Manipur and Delhi police for allegedly inciting hate between communities through social media posts.
Chief Minister N Biren Singh has questioned the acts of activist Mark Haokip terming them as a deliberate attempt to disturb the peace. Chief Minister N Biren had also made it clear that law will take its own course.
