SC dismisses Teesta Setalvad's plea to defreeze bank a/cs 16.12.2017 DNA: India
The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed activists Teesta Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand's petition challenging the October 2015 Gujarat High Court order that rejected their pleas to defreeze their personal bank accounts. The judgment pronounced by a bench of Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justice AM Khanwilkar observed that authorities followed proper procedures in freezing the bank accounts in connection with a complaint filed by residents of the Gulbarg Society in Ahmedabad, Gujarat for misappropriation of funds. "Although both the sides have adverted to statement of accounts and vouchers to buttress their respective submissions, we do not deem it necessary, nor think it appropriate to analyse the same while considering the matter on hand which emanates from an application preferred by the appellants to de-freeze the stated bank accounts pending investigation of the case. Indisputably, the investigation is still in progress. The appellants will have to explain their position to the ...

Gujarat High Court upholds SIT's report, finds no plot in Gujarat riots 6.10.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The Gujarat High Court said on Thursday that there was no "larger conspiracy" in the 2002 Gujarat riots, and upheld a Supreme Court-monitored Special Investigation Team's report that had cleared 59 government functionaries, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi who was then the state Chief Minister. The court was responding to a petition filed by Zakia Jafri — the widow of Congress leader Ehsan Jafri who was killed in the riots — and Tessta Setalvad's Citizens for Justice and Peace specifically. The petition had challenged the SIT's report and the ruling of a magistrate's court that had upheld it in 2013, saying the politician's opening fire in self-defence had acted as a catalyst and infuriated the mob. The SIT had said in its 2012 closure report that Modi took all possible steps to control the riots, triggered after coaches of Sabarmati Express train were burnt at Godhra station, killing many. Zakia then moved the High Court in 2014, reiterating that Modi had turned a blind eye to the violence, and ...
