Activist Setslvad arrested after clean chit to Mod

A Gujarat anti-terror squad (ATS) team today arrested activist Teesta Setalvad. She is being taken to Ahmedabad. According to the FIR, activist Teesta and two former IPS officers have been booked for allegedly giving false information about the Gujarat riots.

The Gujarat Police has booked former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, former IPS officer RB Sreekumar and activist Teesta Setalvad in the case.

This development comes after the Supreme Court upheld the Special Investigation Team’s (SIT) clean chit to 64 people, including PM Narendra Modi, in the 2002 riots case.

Earlier in the day, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, in an interview, accused Setalvad of giving baseless information about the 2002 Gujarat riots to the police.
