New Delhi, Feb 19: In a huge relief to social activist Teesta Setalvad, the Supreme Court on Thursday granted her anticipatory bail in the embezzlement case. 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.

It can be noted that the Gujarat police sought the couple's arrest to question them in connection with the case. Teesta is accused of embezzling Rs 1.5 crore donations meant for the construction of a memorial at Gulbarg Society.
