Don’t arrest Teesta, orders SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court ordered to Gujarat Police not to arrest social activist Teesta Setalvad and her husband in a case of alleged misappropriation of funds for a museum at Ahmedabad's Gulbarg Society. The Gulbarg society where Congress MP Ehsan Jafri used to reside was devastated during the 2002 Gujarat carnage.  

"It is directed that the petitioners (Setalvad and her husband) will not be arrested in connection with the case," a bench comprising justices Dipak Misra and Adarsh Kumar Goel said, while reserving its judgement on their plea seeking anticipatory bail.

The apex court directed Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand to provide all documents, vouchers and list of persons who gave donations to their NGOs Sabrang Trust and Citizens for Justice and Peace for carrying out investigation in the case.

The bench accepted the request of their counsel Kapil Sibal that their accountant will be allowed to represent along with them before the Gujarat Police during the inquiry.
