Two people from Manipur were arrested for posting on FB that cow dung won't cure Covid-19. They were under remand since Thursday based on the Indian penal code’s section 153 for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups on religious, racial, linguistic, cultural grounds and acts causing disharmony. Yesterday the process of getting a bail was happening, but before the formalities could be completed NSA was slapped into them.

The two  detained are Kishorechandra Wangkhem, a popular journalist and an activist Erendro Leichombam. Their lawyer  Victor Chongtham said, “We had deposited their bond amounts and were awaiting a printed copy of the court’s order granting them bail when the police decided to detain both under NSA.” He further added that the case was filed by BJP leaders, and now they are sending representatives to the centre as well as the state government to seek his client's release.“If that fails to elicit the desired outcome, we will approach the Manipur high court.” Moreover, the police have been put with allegations that the family members were assaulted during their arrest.
