Gujarat riots: Crime Branch to probe Teesta Setalvad's collection of funds
Gulbarg Society resudents had alleged that Teesta Setalvad had collected donations in the name of the society and had not distributed the money.
New Delhi: The Ahmedabad Crime Branch is likely to conduct an inquiry into activist Teesta Setalvad's collection of funds for Gulbarg Society. The residents had alleged that Teesta had collected donations in the name of Gulbarg Society and had not distributed the money.
A section of Gulberg Society residents met Joint Commissioner of police on Tuesday and sought an inquiry against the activist who then referred the case to the Ahmedabad Crime Branch.
The row dates back to 2006 when Setalvad had proposed to purchase the 5,200 square metre Gulbarg Society land from the residents to set up a museum of resistance through her trust. However, with property prices escalating, residents now want a larger sum. The deal fell through, but Setalvad's trust had already collected donations.
The Gulbarg judgement is still awaited, but differences between riot victims over the property have only begun. The human rights activist finds herself at the receiving end after a set of Gulbarg Society residents sent her a notice, asking her to distribute funds collected by her among the riot victims.
