Intentional Foul

4-19-1: A personal foul is a player foul which involves illegal contact with an opponent while the ball is live, which hinders an opponent from performing normal defensive and offensive movements. A personal foul also includes contact by or on an airborne shooter when the ball is dead.

4-19-5: A technical foul is:
a. A foul by a non-player.
b. A non-contact foul by a player.
c. An intentional or flagrant contact foul while the ball is dead, except a foul by an airborne shooter
The red part is the key. ITF means the ball was dead. So let’s say there’d been a common foul away from the ball half a second before, and then for good measure the player challenging the cutter decided to grab her as you described anyway. That would be an ITF because the ball was dead at that point. That matters for a) DQ purposes, b) who can shoot the free throws (anyone), and c) where you administer the throw-in.
