New Delhi The Supreme Court on Friday extended the interim protection from arrest granted to Teesta Setalvad and her husband Javed Anand till March 18 in a case of alleged embezzlement of funds for a museum at Ahmedabad’s Gulbarg Society that was devastated in the 2002 riots.
The apex court, however, issued a warning to the couple, saying that they should cooperate with the probe or be ready to be arrested.

Setalvad and others have been accused of embezzling over one and a half-crore rupees that was collected to convert the Gulberg Society, where 69 people were killed during the post-Godhra riots in 2002 into a museum in memory of the riot victims. (ANI)
