Irom Sharmila acquitted in case of attempt to suicide

A local court in Delhi today acquitted Irom Sharmila in a case of attempt to suicide. The Manipuri rights activist Irom has been on a 15-year-long hunger strike to press for the repeal of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act.

Metropolitan Magistrate Harvinder Singh acquitted Sharmila in the case registered in 2006.

The court on March 4, 2013 framed charges against Sharmila for attempting to commit suicide in Delhi and put her on trial after she refused to plead guilty.

Sharmila denied attempting suicide while fasting at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.
