Court observed prima facie documentary evidence exists against the accused persons

Ahmedabad: Social activist Teesta Setalwad, her husband Javed Anand and son of slain Congress MP Ehsan Jafri, Tanvir were on Tuesday denied anticipatory bail by a local court in the Gulbarg Society fund embezzlement case.
