new delhi, Fri, 13 Apr 2012 NI Wire

The Supreme Court gave a relief to social activist Teesta Setalvad and stayed all the cases against her connected with the 2002 Gujarat riots case involving the digging buried bodies. Bench has said that it was the authority that should have been prosecuted for the violation of human rights.

An apex court bench comprising of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai told Gujarat government counsel that they should read the FIR. Accused should have been on the other side i.e. state authority and it should have been prosecuted for the violation of the human rights.

We are highly dissatisfied as the case is made out against the authorities. If a holistic view is taken the FIR should have been against the authorities. The court said the entire case against Teesta is malafide.

It is noted that Gujarat govt. had filed an FIR against social activists Teesta Seetalvad alleging her for dug up the mass grave of the people killed in 2002 riots. FIR said that all was done on the behest of Teesta. The case was based on a statement mede by one man Rais khan Pathan who was working in her NGO Justice for Peace.
