Solidarity with Teesta

The Central Bureau of Investigation's (CBI) raid on Teesta Setalvad's house and office is a most shocking instance of misuse of government machinery. Since Setalvad and her colleagues are fully willing to cooperate with the CBI's inquiry, the conclusion is inescapable that the CBI's action is part of a campaign to humiliate and persecute them.

The obvious reason for this is the wellknown fact that Setalvad has been in the forefront of the struggle to bring to justice the guilty of the Gujarat genocide of 2002. It cannot escape notice that persecution of Setalvad is accompanied by a deliberate weakening of the prosecution cases or overnight withdrawals of cases against those who have been accused of heinous crimes.
