 New Delhi: A CBI probe has been ordered against social activist  Teesta Setalvad-owned Sabrang Communications and Publishing  Pvt Ltd (SCPPL) for receiving foreign funds from Ford Foundation  in violation of the law, a home ministry official said on Friday.

“The CBI has been asked to complete the probe as soon as  possible,” the official told IANS, adding that the bank accounts of  SCPPL have also been frozen.

“The IDBI bank’s Khar west branch has been asked to freeze the company’s accounts,” he said.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has also been asked to give status report of the probe to the ministry on monthly basis.
