Communist Party of India (Marxist) has called the FIR filed against Teesta Setalvad in an Ahmedabad police station  “most vindictive act” by the Modi Government designed as a form of punishment for her fight for justice on behalf of Zakia Jaffri and other victim families of the Gujarat violence in 2002.

 

CPIM has stated in their Press Release that “It is a measure of the contempt for minimum democratic norms by the Modi Government that it has time and again sought to suppress through threats, warnings, false FIRs and concocted stories all efforts by Teesta Setalvad and others to bring out the truth behind the role of the Chief Minister in the violence. ”

 

It has been asserted by the CPIM that the timing is also suspect as Zakia Jaffri is in the process of filing an appeal against the ruling of the lower court in favour of the SIT’s clean chit to Modi.

The part has called “The latest effort is condemnable.”  The central committee of CPI(M) has demanded that the FIR be withdrawn.
