New Delhi : A court here on Wednesday acquitted Irom Sharmila, who has been on a 15-year-long hunger strike to press for the repeal of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, from charges of attempt to suicide.

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.  (IANS)
