Nearly 60 Irish writers protest against Varavara Rao’s arrest, express ‘deep unhappiness’

Nearly 60 Irish writers have sent a petition to the Irish Embassy in New Delhi and the Indian Embassy in Dublin protesting against the incarceration of Telugu poet Varavara Rao. The activist is an accused in the Bhima Koregaon case, and was arrested in 2018.

Last week, the Bombay High Court instructed authorities to shift the 80-year-old poet to a hospital in Mumbai for 15 days due to his deteriorating health condition. The court had also noted that he was almost on his deathbed.
