The petition filed by social activist Teesta Setalvad, challenging the Gujarat government for initiating a probe against her for alleged role in a case of illegal exhumation of the bodies of the 2002 riot victims, has been adjourned for July.
Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for Setalvad, told the Supreme Court bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Amitava Roy that an adjournment was needed because it will take more time.
The state also sought time, since Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta was in another court and Ram Jethmalani would be appearing for original complainant.
The matter was adjourned.
