New Delhi  :  Indian corruption police on Tuesday raided the home andoffices of Teesta Setalvad, a prominent human rights activist and critic of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)official said a team had conducted early morning searches at Setalvad’s home, the offices of her charity, the Sabrang Trust, and a third site. A CBI spokeswoman Kanchan Prasad said the raids followed “allegations of criminal conspiracy for illegal acceptance of foreign contribution without registration and prior permission from Ministry of Home Affairs”.
Since Modi swept to power almost a year ago, his Government has tightened surveillance of foreign-funded charities.
