SC reserves Teesta Setalvad judgment, stays arrest for now, pending 'liberty' ICU question...

The Supreme Court Thursday restrained the Gujarat Police from arresting activist Teesta Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand in connection with the alleged misuse of funds collected by NGO Sabrang Trust for setting up a museum at Gulbarga Society which witnessed one of the worst carnage during 2002 Gujarat riots.

An apex court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra also directed her to provide all the documents required by the Gujarat Police in respect of the donors of the fund from within India and overseas.

The court said that Gujarat Police will provide the list of documents required by it from the social activist, and also directed her to cooperate with the Gujarat Police in the interrogation.

NDTV reported that the bench said: "Who the petitioner is, that's absolutely irrelevant, the question is whether liberty can be put on ventilator or stay in intensive care unit... This isn't a case of any scam which needs custodial interrogation. This is a case of misuse of funds of NGOs."
