Mumbai, July 24 (ANI): The Bombay High Court on Friday extended social activist Teesta Setalvad’s interim bail plea by two weeks.
The High Court’s decision came hours after a special CBI court rejected Setalvad’s bail plea in connection with the case registered by the CBI alleging that her organisation received Rs. 1.8 crore from abroad without mandatory approval from the Centre.
The CBI had on July 8 registered a case against Setalvad and her husband and subsequently raided their home and offices a week later.
The agency is probing whether Setalvad’s Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Sabrang received funding from the United States-based Ford Foundation without the government permission. (ANI)
