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 ...

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea by activist Teesta Setalvad and others for defreezing nine bank accounts of her, husband Javed Anand and two NGOs run by her. It, however, said she can seek relief on completion of investigation into a 2014 FIR pertaining to misappropriation of funds. "Indisputably, the investigation is still in progress. The suspicion entertained by the investigating agency as to how the appellants appropriated huge funds, which in fact were meant to be disbursed to the victims of 2002 riots, will have to be explained by them," a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice K M Khanwilkar said. Nine bank accounts of Teesta, Anand and their two NGOs - Sabrang Trust and Citizens for Justice and Peace - were frozen by the Crime Branch of Ahmedabad Police on January 21, 2014 during a probe into allegations of embezzling Rs 1.51 crore collected to convert Gulberg Society - where 69 people were killed during the post-Godhra riots - into a 2002 riots museum.

The Supreme Court today dismissed the pleas of activist Teesta Setalvad, her husband and her two NGOs challenging the Gujarat High Court order rejecting their pleas for de-freezing of their personal bank accounts.

Setalvad, her husband Javed Anand and their two NGOs -- Sabrang Trust and Citizens for Justice and Peace -- had challenged the October 7, 2015 verdict of the high court in the alleged misappropriation of funds received by their NGOs for Gujarat riot victims of 2002.

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 ...

The Gujarat High Court is likely to pronounce on September 26 its order on a petition filed by slain Congress leader Ehsan Jafri's widow Zakia challenging a lower court order upholding a clean chit given to then chief minister Narendra Modi and others in the 2002 riots cases.

The Supreme Court today reserved its order on pleas by activist c and her husband in a case lodged against them for alleged misappropriation of funds received by her NGOs for Gujarat riots victims of 2002.
