Controversial Assamese writer Sikha Sarma has been arrested by the Guwahati Police on charges of sedition and other offenses over an alleged social media post on security forces following the deaths of 22 jawans in the deadly Maoist attack in Chhattisgarh.

The writer was arrested following an FIR lodged by Umi Deka Baruah and Kangkana Goswami.

The police first summoned Sikha Sarma and later arrested her after thorough interrogation.

Sarma on Monday had allegedly written on her Facebook account “Salaried professionals who die in the line of duty can’t be termed martyrs. Going by that logic, the workers of the electricity department who die of electrocution should also be labelled martyrs. Do not make people sentiment, media.”
