Greenpeace India, which has been fighting for its life in the face of a government suppression, said on Wednesday that its office in the eastern city of Chennai had been inspected—with little notice—by government authorities.

The Times of India reports that the investigators “refused to submit their request in writing, but verbally confirmed that they were looking into the organization’s society status—the legal basis on which Greenpeace operates in India. The investigation is ongoing.”

The non-governmental organization (NGO) suggested the surprise inspection came in response to Greenpeace India’s resilience in the face of ongoing government hostility.

“Greenpeace India has turned out to be stronger than the [Indian Ministry of Home Affairs] expected,” program director Divya Raghunandan said. “As a result, the bureaucrats in Delhi are searching desperately for new ways to shut us down. We refuse to be intimidated, and we will cooperate fully with this investigation, as we have done throughout.”
