At the Delhi court on Monday, climate activist Disha Ravi was ordered to one-day police custody in connection with the Greta Thunberg toolkit case.
In the Greta Thunberg toolkit case the activist, Disha Ravi, from Bengaluru was arrested a few days back. The Patiala House Court rejected the Delhi Police’s request for a five-day custody of the 22-year-old and instead has ordered a one-day police custody of the climate activist who has been accused of involving in the tweet of the toolkit. .
Demanding a five-day extension of Ravi’s police detention, the Public Prosecutor claimed that the protester had been evasive during the questioning and had shifted the blame on the co-accused Shantanu Muluk and Nikita Jacob.
On Saturday, during a hearing on a bail plea by Ravi, Deputy Solicitor General S V Raju, appearing for the Delhi Police, told the court that the hyperlinks in the toolkit related people to Khalistani’s websites that spread hate against India.
“This wasn’t just a toolkit. The real plan was to defame India and create havoc here,” he added.
Opposing Ravi’s appeal for parole, the police argued that she was planning a toolkit with those calling for Khalistan. It reported that Ravi had deleted WhatsApp chats, emails and other documentation and had been aware of the legal action she could face.
The Delhi Police claimed that the 22-year-old must be properly prosecuted as “she was aware of the criminality of her actions.” The police told the court that the probe will expose the “defamation of India’s sinister design.”
The decision on Disha’s bail petition for 23 February has been reserved by the judge.
