Sharmila, who was produced before the court of junior magistrate in Imphal east district, remanded her to 15 days of judicial custody.
Speaking to reporters, who were present at the court, Sharmila alleged that AFSPA has not been withdrawn from the state due to 'the weakness of the state government which has failed to convince the necessity to withdraw and repeal the act'.

Under AFSPA, security forces have the power to 'shoot any suspect even causing to death' if an individual is suspected of contravening law. Sharmila, whose cause has been recognized nationwide, expressed her desire for all sections of the society to raise their voice collectively against the AFSPA.
