ANI  |  New Delhi 

The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned the hearing on activist Teesta Seetalvad's plea relating to the alleged embezzlement of funds from her NGO for rehabilitation of Gulbarg Society riots-affected people to August 17.

According to reports, the apex court is expected to hear Teesta's plea pertaining to freezing her personal and other bank accounts in the matter.

Teesta has already told the Supreme Court that the accounts related to the Ford Foundation, personal accounts and other unrelated accounts have been frozen.

The state of Gujarat is to respond in the matter on the freezing of Teesta's accounts.

Setalvad and others have been accused of embezzling over one and a half crore rupees that was collected to convert the Gulberg Society, where 69 people were killed during the post-Godhra riots in 2002 into a museum in memory of the riot victims.
