    The Centre had frozen six accounts belonging to Teesta, her husband and their NGOs, Citizens for Justice and Peace and Sabrang Trust. The Centre had frozen these accounts on the ground that there was alleged misuse of funds. In all there were six accounts that were frozen by the Centre.

    In her petition, Teesta had said that she was being targeted for the active role she played in seeking justice for the 2002 Gujarat communal riot victims. The Bench however rejected all the four petitions.
