Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader Medha Patkar was arrested on Thursday and released on a personal bond in connection with a bailable warrant issued against her by an Ahmedabad court,Madhya Pradesh police said today.

“We had arrested and released Patkar yesterday after she furnished a personal bond of Rs 5000,” the police said.

A Metropolitan Magistrate of Ahmedabad had issued bailable warrant against Patkar after she failed to turn up for a hearing in connection with a case under Section 500 of CrPC.

On the other hand,Patkar claimed that the two police men who had come to her office did not inform her either about the case or arrest. She said that two cops simply asked her to sign some papers and arrested her.
