Supreme Court rejects Teesta Setalvad's petition to defreeze accounts
The Supreme Court has rejected a petition filed by activist Teesta Setalvad in which she had sought for de-freezing of her accounts. Teesta and her husband Anand had moved the SC against the government's decision which had frozen the bank accounts. The Centre had frozen six accounts belonging to Teesta, her husband and their NGOs, Citizens for Justice and Peace and Sabrang Trust. 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.
