Indira Jaising and husband Anand Grover accused of misusing foreign contributions
NEW DELHI: Senior lawyers Indira Jaising and her husband Anand Grover are being raided by the CBI, which has accused them of violating a law on foreign funding.
Raids started at around 5 am at the home of Indira Jaising in Delhi's Nizamuddin, the office of the NGO and another office in Mumbai. The CBI had earlier filed a case against Anand Grover and his NGO Lawyers Collective for alleged violation of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA).
The investigating agency's First Information Report, filed on the basis of a Home Ministry complaint, does not name Indira Jaising as an accused but the ministry reportedly referred to her alleged role. The CBI case says Indira Jaising received a remuneration of Rs. 96.60 lakh from Lawyers Collective.
