Teesta now accused of buying support 28.7.2015 deccanherald.com
The Ahmedabad crime branch officials on Tuesday said that they have material evidence which would help them nail activist Teesta Setalvad in the case Gulbarg Society case. Setalvad is accused of collecting Rs 1.51 crore through her two NGOs — Sabrang Trust and Citizen for Justice & Peace (CJP) — from domestic and international donors with a promise to convert riot-hit Gulbarg into a museum.

Government gathers might to muzzle Teesta, say activists 28.7.2015 DNA: Money
A group of activists, social workers, lawyers and eminent media personalities on Monday held a press conference to show their solidarity with activist Teesta Setalvad, and to pointedly raise questions to the government for digging up a 12-year-old issue, timing suspiciously with the hearing of the case filed by Zakia Jafri against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and 59 others in the 2002 Godhra riots case. Social activist and writer Harsh Mander said that a state-sponsored pogrom like the Godhra riots need to be fought to ensure that this does not happen again. “If we allow state-sponsored violence to go unquestioned and unchecked, the idea of India will fall apart,” he said, citing how the victims of the 1983 Delhi riots, the 1993 Bombay riots and the 2002 Nellie massacre are still not compensated. Teesta Setalvad, and her husband Javed Anand have been working to ensure justice for 2002 Gujarat riots victims, and has been working on 68 cases, some at the trial courts, some at the High Court, while a few at ...

Gujarat High Court condones Teesta Setalvad's delay in filing plea 28.7.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
 The Gujarat High Court on Monday condoned the delay in filing a plea by social activist Teesta Setalvad to defreeze her bank accounts in the alleged fund embezzlement case and fixed the next hearing on August 5. Last month Setalwad had moved the plea to defreeze her bank accounts in an alleged embezzlement case wherein she had allegedly collected Rs 1.51 crore from national and international donors promising to convert Gulberg Society to a 2002 riots museum, but allegedly spent money for personal purposes. The city crime branch had frozen the bank accounts of Setlavad, her husband Javed Anand and two of their NGOs' accounts after they began probe into the embezzlement case filed by a former resident of Gulberg Society last year.
