Ahmedabad court rejects discharge plea of Teesta Setalvad in 2002 riots evidence fabrication case

Ahmedabad: A sessions court here on Thursday rejected activist Teesta Setalvad’s discharge plea in a case of alleged fabrication of evidence related to the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Additional sessions judge A R Patel rejected Setalvad’s plea.

The Gujarat government had opposed her application saying that she abused the trust of the riots victims and implicated innocent persons.
