The Supreme Court Thursday directed social activist Teesta Setalvad and her husband to cooperate with the agencies probing the two criminal cases against them. The court also extended interim bail to the couple till March 18.
Teesta and her husband Javed Anand have been named as accused in cases of alleged embezzlement of funds and violation of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA).
While Gujarat Police is probing alleged embezzlement of funds collected to build a museum at Ahmedabad’s Gulbarg Society, which was devastated in the 2002 riots, the CBI is investigating allegations of FCRA violations by Sabrang Communications and Publishing Pvt Ltd, run by the couple, in utilisation of funds received from the Ford Foundation.
During the hearing, the CBI and Gujarat police told the bench that Teesta and her husband were not cooperating with the investigators and had not handed over relevant documents.
