Activists, journalists and civil society members on Thursday staged a two-hour protest at Jantar Mantar, denouncing the CBI raids at human rights activist Teesta Setalvad’s Mumbai residence, two days ago.

Around 50 members of groups like ANHAD, Jamia Teachers’ Association, United Christian Forum, Jana Natya Manch, among others, raised slogans against the Centre, the CBI and RSS for hounding Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand.
