The Supreme Court has granted regular bail to activist Teesta Setalvad in a case related to the 2002 post-Godhra riots.
Teesta Setalvad was arrested on charges of fabricating evidence to frame innocent people in the post-Godhra riots cases.
The bail was granted by a three-judge bench of Justices B R Gavai, A S Bopanna, and Dipankar Datta.
The court ruled that custodial interrogation of Teesta Setalvad was not necessary.
The Gujarat Police has the authority to approach the highest court directly if there are any attempts to tamper with witnesses in the case.
Teesta Setalvad, along with two others, was taken into custody on June 25 last year by the Ahmedabad crime branch police.
The bail applications of Setalvad and another accused were previously dismissed by an Ahmedabad sessions court.
The Supreme Court's decision emphasizes the need for a fair trial and upholding justice in sensitive cases.
The verdict marks a significant development in the legal proceedings surrounding the post-Godhra riots case.
