An FIR has been filed through Gujarat Police against Teesta Setalvad, R.B. Sreekumar, and Sanjiv Bhatt on different charges, including forgery and criminal conspiracy.

The police crackdown came just a morning after Supreme Court upheld the clean letter from the SIT to then the Chief Minister Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gujarat protests.

Sreekumar was taken to Crime Branch headquarters in Jamalpur, Ahmedabad, where Sreekumar was taken into custody.

Sreekumar informed his Nanavati Commission that Modi had demanded that police "allow those Hindus" the right to "vent out their frustration" in protest against the murder of Godhra train fire.

The ATS team of Gujarat Police was rushed to Mumbai to arrest Setalvad. Setalvad, whose NGO, JCP, was a petitioner in various petitions regarding the 2002 riots.

Sanjiv Bhatt was subject to criticisms in the Supreme Court order. Bhatt is currently in jail after being taken into custody in the year 2018 in the custodial death case.

The FIR is based on different laws in the Indian Penal Code, including sections 468, 471, 120(B), 194, 218, and 211.

As per the FIR, the accused, Jafri, also admitted during the cross-examination that she had followed Ms. Setalvad's directions throughout the trial.

The SIT was established to investigate the Supreme Court following complaints that the Gujarat Police - under Modi, was not serious about investigating the anti-Muslim violence.

Setalvad has lodged a case against Gujarat ATS in the Santacruz Police Station. She claims they broke into her home without warrants, and I'm being taken.

Bhatt had submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court naming Mr. Modi for his involvement in the violence.

Bhatt's claim that he was present in the meeting at the CM's residence was proved untrue. The FIR claims that Bhatt made up evidence to establish his presence during the event.
