She has been reported to have committed suicide. Humtsoe received the Nari Shakti Puraskar award from the former President of India Pranab Mukherjee in March 2017, at Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi for her outstanding contribution to women empowerment. The award was bestowed by the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development.
She was known among a section of the regional media as ‘the Modi girl’, after her encounter with Prime Narendra Modi during the Hornbill Festival in 2014 when Modi left his VVIP entourage to attend to the call of Humtsoe introducing him to PML.
In an interview with Eastern Mirror in 2015, Humtsoe had shared her vision of making PML a world class ‘Made in Nagaland’ brand.
