Two FIRs were lodged in August 2014 against Setalvad, one at Ghatlodia police station in Ahmedabad by Vishwa Hindu Parishad activist Raju Patel, and another by one Kirit Mistry at C Division police station in Bhavnagar.
The court directed the couple to cooperate with the investigation and appear before probe agency as and when required. He said that in case of any default, the state can file for their bail cancellation.
Mumbai-based activist Teesta Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand's counsel Mihir Thakore argued that not only was the FIR lodged by Ahmedabad Detection of Crime Branch out its jurisdiction, but that the contents of FIR are false.
The Supreme Court had last month granted temporary relief to Setalvad and Anand, extending their interim protection from arrest and transit anticipatory bail from May 2 to May 31, granted to them by the Bombay High Court.

A case was filed against Teesta Setalvad and her husband on the basis of a complaint lodged by her former associate Raees Khan Pathan, who alleged that central funds, granted for educational purposes, were misused.
The case was registered by the Ahmedabad Crime Branch on a complaint accusing Teesta Setalvad and her husband Anand of "fraudulently" securing grants of Rs 1.4 crore from the union government through their NGO Sabrang Trust between 2008 and 2013.
