NEW DELHI, Sep 9: Ailing CPI(M) leader M Y Tarigami, who has been under house arrest for over a month in Srinagar, was shifted to AIIMS here on Monday morning, officials said.
Accompanied by a doctor, a relative and a police officer, Tarigami arrived here and was immediately taken to AIIMS, the officials said.
The Supreme Court had on Thursday said that Tarigami should be shifted “at the earliest” to “the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi, from Srinagar, where he is under house arrest.”
He had been put under house arrested in the early hours of August 5 when the Centre abrogated special status to Jammu and Kashmir under the Constitution
Supreme Court had directed the authorities to shift him to Delhi for treatment, after taking cognizance of an affidavit filed by CPI (M) leader Sitaram Yechury following his visit to the valley, last month. On August 28, the apex court had allowed Yechury to visit Jammu and Kashmir to meet ailing Tarigami and file an affidavit on the latter's health condition.
Taking note of the affidavit filed by him on his return, the top court ordered him to be shifted to AIIMS. Tarigami is a member of the Central Committee of the CPI (M) and has served as a four-time MLA of the dissolved Jammu and Kashmir Assembly.
