Huckabee, the president of the International Society for Human Rights, was brought Friday to Imphal on provisional remand after being arrested in a case booked last year on charges of fomenting hostility or bad faith between communities.

Seeking pre-trial detention, the police told the judge that Hookip had uploaded a Facebook post that intended to misinterpret the merger agreement between the state and the union of India.

Police said Hookip’s circular said the merger agreement signed by the Maharaja covers only 700 square miles and does not cover the area occupied by tribal chiefs and their subjects. They requested eight days of pretrial detention for Hockepp for thorough interrogation.

The Chief Justice of Imphal West had earlier issued a non-bail arrest warrant for the 37-year-old human rights activist at the request of the Imphal Police. The police wanted him because of his alleged posts on Twitter and Facebook about freedom fighter and Padma Bhushan award winner Rani Gaidinliu.

The app also said that leaders of 10 civil society organizations also filed a police complaint stating that Huckabee’s comments hurt the feelings of many people and may upset societal harmony.
