She was directed to provide a complete list of donors who gave money for the construction of a memorial for the riot victims in Gulbarg Society in Ahmedabad.

Along with Teesta, her husband was also granted bail in the case.

The apex court asked the state government about the need of their custodial interrogation in the embezzlement case.
