New Delhi(ANI): Social Activist Teesta Setalvad’s anticipatory bail plea in connection with an embezzlement case was rejected by the Gujarat High Court on Thursday.
Besides Setalwad, her husband Javed Anand, former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri’s (who was killed in Gujarat during the 2002 riots) son Tanvir Jafri are accused of misappropriating funds worth over Rs one crore and now face arrest.
An FIR had reportedly been lodged last year against the activist and the others for allegedly misappropriating the funds meant for a museum for the riot victims.
Denying any misuse of funds, Setalwad had blamed political motives behind the case, say reports.
