Supreme Court pulls up Teesta Setalvad

Teesta Setalvad

The Supreme Court Thursday pulled up convenor of NGO Citizens for Justice and Peace, Teesta Setalvad, for sending communications addressed to the special investigating team (SIT) probing the 2002 Gujarat riots to the UN Human Rights Commission.

The SIT, headed by former CBI director R.K. Raghavan, is investigating the 2002 Godhra and post-Godhra riots.

The apex court’s special bench headed by Justice D.K. Jain said: “We don’t appreciate a letter being sent to a foreign country. We can’t approve of it.”

The court, however, disposed the matter after Setalvad made a statement that in future she will not mark any communication addressed to the SIT to the international rights panel.
