Fraud Expert Teesta Setalvad Gets Bail


TNN Aug 3, 2011, 04.07am IST

AHMEDABAD: A city sessions court on Tuesday granted anticipatory bail to social activist Teesta Setalvad in connection with an alleged offence of preparation of false affidavits on behalf of the 2002 riots victims and filing them before the Supreme Court.

The police have already begun probe into fabrication of affidavits case. Special judge S H Vora, hearing Naroda Gam massacre case, had ordered to file an FIR against Rais Khan, a former employee of Teesta’s Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP), for his admission of having prepared false affidavits.

Setalvad sought anticipatory bail fearing arrest, for the Gujarat high court last month gave green signal to police to investigate the role of Khan’s associates, and Khan has always wanted to testify against her former employer. While granting bail on furnishing personal bond of Rs 25,000 and on the condition of surrendering her passport within three days, additional sessions Judge S B Gajre observed that since all the evidence in this case, which is in form of depositions before the special court, has been already taken on record, there is no chance of her tampering with evidence.
