Bombay HC extends Setalvad's interim bail

Mumbai : In a breather for social activist Teesta Setalvad, the Bombay High Court on Friday extended her and her husband Javed Anand's interim bail by two weeks.

The high court order came barely hours after a special court rejected their anticipatory bail application, paving the way for their immediate arrest.

Anticipating arrest for custodial interrogation sought by the Central Bureau of Investigation, Setalvad's lawyers moved the Bombay High Court.

Setalvad, Anand and an associate G.M. Peshimam have been charged with committing fraud and irregularities pertaining to foreign donations received by her NGO, Sabrang Communications & Publishing Pvt. Ltd. under the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act.
