New Delhi : Licence of NGO run by noted lawyer Indira Jaising–‘Lawyers’ Collective’–was on Wednesday suspended by the Modi government for six months for alleged violation of FCRA by using the funds for rallies, dharna with political ‘hue and colour’, a charge denied by the association which termed it as an act of ‘vindictiveness’.

The Home Ministry, while suspending the licence under Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), asked the NGO to submit its reply within 30 days for violation of various provisions of the Act after which its registration may even be cancelled.

Denying all the charges in a statement, the NGO condemned the government action and said it was only to ‘victimise the organization’ and its office bearers Indira Jaising and Anand Grover.
