A team of Gujarat ATS has detained activist Teesta Setalvad in Mumbai and took her to Santacruz police station. A cop team had reached her Mumbai residence earlier on Saturday in connection to a case on her NGO. The move by Gujarat Police came after the Supreme Court had called for further investigation on Setalvad and asked on whose behest did Setalvad run the campaign against Modi for 16 years. 

After the observation of the Supreme Court, a case has been registered against Teesta Setalvad, Sanjeev Bhat and R B Sri Kumar in Ahmedabad Crime Branch under Sections 468,  471, 194, 211, 218, 120B. Teesta Setalvad, Sanjeev Bhat and R B Sri Kumar have been accused of misusing the legal process on the basis of

Zakia Jafri's petition and presenting false documents in different commissions.  

On Friday, the Supreme Court had dismissed a petition challenging the clean chit given by the SIT to then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and others in the 2002 post-Godhra riots cases. Setalvad's NGO had supported Zakia Jafri throughout her legal battle. Jafri's husband Ehsan Jafri was killed during the riots.

While talking to news agency ANI on Friday, Amit Shas said Teesta Setalvad-run NGO gave baseless information about the Gujarat riots. Shah's comments came after the Supreme Court on Friday rejected an appeal against the exoneration of then-state Chief Minister Narendra Modi in a 2002 riots case.
