In response to media queries on a comment by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights regarding legal action against Teesta Setalvad and two other persons, the Official Spokesperson Shri Arindam Bagchi said:
"We have seen a comment by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) regarding legal action against Teesta Setalvad and two other persons.
The remarks by OHCHR are completely unwarranted and constitute an interference in India's independent judicial system.
Authorities in India act against violations of law strictly in accordance with established judicial processes.
Labelling such legal actions as persecution for activism is misleading and unacceptable.”
