Irom Sharmila, center, who has been on a decade-long hunger strike protesting an anti-terror law is escorted by police for an appearance at Patiala House court in New Delhi, India, Monday, March 4, 2013. The 40-year-old woman, who has spent the past 12 years without voluntarily taking food or water, was charged with attempted suicide by a court on Monday for protesting in the Indian capital in 2006 demanding withdrawal of an anti-terror law that grants Indian soldiers sweeping powers to crack down on rebels. Sharmila had her last voluntary meal on Nov. 4, 2000, in Imphal, capital of Manipur, one of several northeastern states facing armed rebellions against Indian rule. She was arrested three days later and has been force-fed through her nose ever since in a hospital. (AP Photo/Saurabh Das)
