Ahmedabad court remands social activist Teesta Setalvad and former DGP RB Sreekumar to police custody till July 2

A court in Ahmedabad has remanded social activist Teesta Setalvad and former Gujarat director general of police RB Sreekumar to police custody till July 2 in a case of fabricating evidence to frame innocent persons in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Setalvad and Sreekumar have been arrested in connection with an FIR lodged on Saturday by the Ahmedabad crime branch. Another accused former IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, who is serving life sentence in a custodial death case, is lodged in a jail in Palanpur in Banaskantha district. He will be brought to Ahmedabad on a transfer warrant.

Ahmedabad crime branch had registered an FIR against the three accused on Saturday, a day after the Supreme Supreme Court dismissed a petition challenging the clean chit given by the SIT to then chief minister Narendra Modi and others in 2002 post-Godhra riots cases.

Setalvad, Sreekumar and Bhatt are accused of abusing the process of law by conspiring to fabricate evidence with an attempt to frame innocent people for an offence punishable with capital punishment in connection with the 2002 Gujarat riots.
