The former MLA alleged that his vehicle has been taken away and he will be confined to his home. The ailing leader was shifted to the AIIMS on September 9 following the apex court’s order.

The party’s general secretary Sitaram Yechury had been allowed to meet Tarigami on August 29 after the Supreme Court gave him permission. Before the court’s order, Yechury was not allowed to meet his colleague.
