In some comforting information on how Teesta Setalvad is doing in police custody, her husband Javed Anand met her again today, as did her lawyers.

“After I met her yesterday, she was taken for a mandatory medical check-up. She was prescribed an additional ointment for the bruise on her arm,” Anand told SabrangIndia, adding, “I met her again today and she told me that she had been questioned by the police for around four hours yesterday.” 

“She seemed relaxed. I was allowed to give her some books for light reading, and some other essential items. She asked me for a copy of The Framing of the Indian Constitution,” said the activist-journalist who co-founded the magazine Communalism Combat as well as SabrangIndia with his human rights defender wife.

He meets her for about 15 minutes every day. Setalvad and Anand meet and talk in a small office space with women constables present. After this Setalvad confers with her lawyers for about 45 minutes.
