YAMUNANAGAR: The Yamunanagar police have arrested a woman for suspected Maoist links. “Poonam, a resident of Panipat, has been arrested for
launching a provocative and anti-election campaign,”

The cops were alerted after anti-election graffiti had appeared at various places in Yamunanagar some days ago. Suspecting Poonam of writing the warnings for poll boycott on the instructions of Maoist rebels, they have registered a case and slapped her with sedition charges.

The accused, 27, was arrested from Bilaspur town of the district and later sent to police remand.
Though the officials refused to divulge details, they said the accused had told them that she had joined tuition classes in Bilaspur after completing her graduation. Police have now set up four teams and hope to make more arrests in
the caSE
