Teesta Setalvad taken into custody, Gujarat ATS leaves for Ahmedabad

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: After taking activist Teesta Setalvad into custodianship about an instance on her NGO, the Gujarat Anti-terrorism Team (ATS) group left for Ahmedabad from Mumbai on Saturday evening.

The Gujarat ATS group took Teesta Setalvad to the Santacruz police station the other day.
The activity came after Union Minister Amit Shah in a meeting with media said that Teesta Setalvad-run NGO gave ungrounded info about the 2002 Gujarat riots to the cops.

” I have checked out the judgement very meticulously. The reasoning clearly discusses the name of Teesta Setalvad. The NGO that was run being run by her – I don’t bear in mind the name of the NGO- had actually offered unwarranted details about the riots to the police,” Amit Shah, in a special meeting, informed media.

The Supreme Court carried Friday, disregarded as “devoid of advantage” a charm by Zakia Jafri in an appeal tough SIT’s tidy note to the after that chief minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi as well as others in cases connected to the troubles. Zakia Jafri is the widow of previous Congress MP Ehsan Jafri who was eliminated in the riots.

Inquired about his reference of NGOs, Shah stated: “I have reviewed the judgment hurriedly yet it clearly mentions the name of Teesta Setalvad. It was Setalvad’s NGO that offered an application including BJP workers in every police headquarters as well as the pressure by the media was so immense that every application was dealt with as fact.”

A three-judge bench of the court headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar, upholding the Special Examination Team or SIT’s 2012 clean tab to Head of state Narendra Modi in the Gujarat riots situation, claimed that Setalvad, co-petitioner in case, exploited the feelings of Zakia Jafri.
