'I respect you,' says magistrate and applies law : Fasting lady Irom Sharmila put on trial
The Telegraph | PTI | New Delhi, Mar 4 ():
“I respect you but the law of the land does not permit you to take your life,” the judge said, asking her counsel to make her understand the process.
Even after discussions with her counsel, Chanu said, “If AFSPA will be repealed by the government then only I will take food and will throw the food pipe” through which she is fed.
The court, however, told her, “This is a political process. Here I am concerned with this case only.”
Chanu had launched her fast unto death in 2000 after 10 civilians were killed by Assam Rifles personnel at Malom area near Imphal airport.
