Activist Teesta Setalvad may have had a bumpy ride from the start in her attempts to fight for justice for the victims of the 2002 Gujarat riots but recent cases foisted on her by the Gujarat police and Central Bureau of Investigation are being widely seen as a last ditch attempt by the state to stop her in her tracks. Teesta’s defenders say accusations of embezzlement and embellished accounts of what the CBI found when it raided her home are aimed at diluting the potency of the Zakia Jafri petition her organisation is now taking to the Gujarat High Court in its attempt to indict Narendra Modi for complicity in the 2002 violence.
