No bail for Teesta, her husband in Gulbarg Society’s fund embezzlement case
Ahmedabad city sessions court judge HC Vora also rejected anticipatory bail plea of two others who were members of the Gulbarg Society association.

The court observed in its order that prima facie documentary evidence exists against the accused persons.

‘There is a prima facie documentary evidence against the accused persons which needs a thorough investigation,’ the judge said in the order.

The prosecution had earlier argued that Setalwad and others have usurped funds meant for riot victims and collected donations from India and abroad in the name of making a museum at the Gulburg Society, but later they used those funds for other purposes.

Former Congress MP Ehsan Jafri was among 68 people massacred during the Gulbarg Society riots in 2002.

The court accepted the prosecution’s arguments as facts, sayin,g ‘Police investigation is needed to be conducted in the presence of the accused.’
