CPI(M) leader Tarigami should be moved to AIIMS, says SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered that ailing CPI(M) leader Mohd Yusuf Tarigami be shifted from Srinagar, where he is under detention at his home, to AIIMS in Delhi without any delay for better treatment.

A bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer said the shifting will be done following consultations between doctors at Srinagar's Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

The bench also issued notice to the Centre and the Jammu and Kashmir administration on CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury's plea that there was no order for Tarigami's detention.

The bench sought a reply within one week and posted the matter for further hearing on September 16.

"Having perused the report submitted by the petitioner (Yechury) pursuant to the order of this court, dated August 28, we are of the view that immediate steps should be taken to shift Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami to the AIIMS, New Delhi.

"The time and mode of travel of Tarigami will be decided by the State Government in consultation with the doctors and specialists of SKIMS, Srinagar," the bench said in its order.
