The high court order came barely hours after a special court rejected their anticipatory bail application, paving the way for their immediate arrest.

Anticipating arrest for custodial interrogation sought by the Central Bureau of Investigation, Setalvad’s lawyers moved the Bombay High Court.

Setalvad, Anand and an associate G.M. Peshimam have been charged with committing fraud and irregularities pertaining to foreign donations received by her NGO, Sabrang Communications & Publishing Pvt. Ltd. under the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act. (IANS)
