Sharmila would be flown to Delhi on Sunday as she has to appear before a court in connection with the fast she undertook in Delhi in the past demanding the repeal of AFSPA, Imphal central jail superintendent IK Muivah reportedly said.

She has to appear before the court under IPC 309 (attempt to commit suicide) for fasting at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.

She is now in jail and is being fed through her nose at JNIMS Hospital in Imphal.
