cancel

Kolkata: To appear for a pending court case against her, Manipur's Irom Sharmila Tuesday left for Delhi where she is also hoping to meet country's new Prime Minister Narendra Modi for repeal of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA), her family sources said.

The metropolitan magistrate of Patiala House court in New Delhi has summoned Sharmila in connection with a pending case regarding a 2006 hunger strike at the Jantar Mantar, Sharmila's family member told PTI from Imphal.

The 'Iron Lady' will be heard in the court tomorrow and during her stay in the national capital, Sharmila is hoping to meet Modi, Kshetrimayum Onil of Just Peace Foundation said.

On a hunger strike for the last 13 years demanding revocation of the AFSPA, Sharmila has been under arrest for attempting to commit suicide.

Having refused to take food and water all these years, she is forcibly nose-fed at a special ward of the Jawaharlal Nehru hospital in Imphal.
