An Ahmedabad Sessions Court on Thursday denied a discharge plea moved by activist Teesta Setalvad in the 2002 Godhra riots evidence fabrication case, NDTV reported..Additional Sessions Judge Ambalal Patel had reserved the matter for orders after arguments concluded on July 12..With this, Setalvad will have to face trial in the evidence fabrication case. .The activist is alleged to have engaged in document fabrication and witness tutoring to implicate higher officials of the Gujarat government, which was under the leadership of the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi, in the Godhra riots case. .The decision to reject her discharge plea, in this case, came a day after the Supreme Court bench of Justices BR Gavai, AS Bopanna and Dipankar Datta set aside a Gujarat High Court order that had refused bail to Setalvad. .Setalvad was taken into custody by the Gujarat Anti-Terror Squad a day after a Supreme Court judgment passed in 2022 in another case, wherein the top Court also remarked that those responsible for 'maligning the State' after the 2002 Gujarat riots should be put 'in the dock.'In September 2022, the Supreme Court granted her interim bail in the case.Earlier this month, the Gujarat High Court rejected her regular bail plea and ordered her immediate arrest. However, hours later, the Supreme Court granted interim protection to Setalvad until the matter was heard again by the top court. Thereafter, the Supreme Court ordered that she continue to remain on bail and set aside the High Court's directions, in an order passed yesterday.
