| Friday | 12th July, 2019
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) carried out raids at residences of senior lawyers Indira Jaising and her husband Anand Grover and offices of Lawyers Collective, an NGO run by Grover, in Mumbai and Delhi for alleged violations of the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act (FCRA) in receiving foreign aid.
Reacting on CBI raids, Jaising said, "Mr Grover and I are being targeted for the human rights work that we have done over the years."
The CBI last month had registered a case against the Lawyers Collective, its president Grover and other office-bearers, including senior lawyer Jaising based on the Ministry of Home Affairs' (MHA) probe over violation of foreign funds.
In its letter to the CBI, the Ministry listed several alleged violations on the part of the organisation's functionaries, including Grover.
She also received Rs 96.6 lakh as remuneration from Lawyers Collective out of foreign contribution while working as ASG.
