The Supreme Court on Thursday extended the stay on the arrest of social activist Teesta Setalvad and her husband in the ongoing probe over the misappropriation of public funds, while has been filed against them. The apex court also referred Setalvad's anticipatory bail plea in the case to a larger bench.
Last month, the Supreme Court had directed the Gujarat Police to provide Setalvad and her husband a list of documents needed from them.
The court had told the Gujarat Police that the accused are also entitled to have the list, which has already made available to the Supreme Court.
An FIR had reportedly been lodged last year against Setalwad, her husband Javed Anand and Tanvir Jafri, son of former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri (who was killed in the 2002 Gujarat riots), for allegedly embezzling funds meant for a museum for the victims of the incident.
