This is not guaranteed to be safe

If the corrupted sstable has a tombstone past gc grace, and another sstable has 
shadowed deleted data, removing the corrupt sstable will cause the data to come 
back to life, and repair will spread it around the ring

If that’s problematic to you, you should consider the entire node failed, run 
repair among the surviving replicas and then replace the down server

If you don’t do deletes, and write with consistency higher than ONE, there’s a 
bit less risk to removing a single sstable
