Cops arrive at Teesta home, SC stays arrest
The Supreme Court on Thursday stayed the arrest of social activist Teesta Setalvad arrest till Friday when her bail plea comes before it in the case involving alleged embezzlement of Gulberg Society fund. A bench headed by Chief Justice of India, HL Dattu passed the order after former union minister and advocate Kapil Sibal argued that the ‘mighty’ Gujarat police is hell bent on arresting her.

Dattu’s directive came hours after the Gujarat High Court rejected the anticipatory bail petitions filed by Setalvad, her husband Javed Anand, Tanvir Jafri (whose father Ehsan Jafri, former Congress MP, was killed during the 2002 Gujarat riots) and Firoz Gulzar, a resident of Gulberg Society here, in the case. The apex court will hear their interim bail plea on Friday.
