Pathanamthitta: Activist Rehana Fathima has been remanded for 14 days. She was arrested last day for hurting religious sentiments and tarnishing Hindu ideologies. Rehana has been shifted to Kottarakakra sub jail. Following arrest, she was suspended from BSNL.
The High Court had earlier dismissed her anticipatory bail and instructed police that they can take necessary steps. Police arrested her at 1:00 pm last day from Palarivattom BSNL office.
The filed complaint is based on the comments, writings and images she posted on 1st and 10th of October. Pathanamthitta police registered a case regarding this issue on 20th October. The High Court dismissed Rehana’s anticipatory bail on 16th November.
Even after such provocative incidents, Rehana was a part of numerous public functions and continued her provocative manner. Police’s passive attitude and soft corner towards Rehana caused lot of criticisms too.
