22-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi got conditional bail 9 days after his arrest. Delhi’s Patiala House Court issued orders for his release on Tuesday. The court said, “It is not a crime to create a WhatsApp group or edit a toolkit.” Referring to Rigveda, there are such welfare ideas that cannot be stopped and cannot be suppressed.
Bangalore-based Disha is accused of creating and editing the toolkit associated with the peasant movement, which was shared by climate activist Greta Thunberg. This controversial toolkit referred to digital strikes on January 26 and earlier.
5 comments of the court regarding direction and investigation
Court asked for evidence
In the previous hearing, the court had asked the Delhi Police what evidence do you have that there is a connection between the toolkit and the violence on 26 January. On this, Delhi Police had told that investigation is on. The police had said that direction was also involved in the global conspiracy to defame India. Through this, an attempt was made to spoil the atmosphere under the guise of the peasant movement. Disha not only created and shared a toolkit, but she was also in touch with a man who advocated Khalistan. However, Disha’s counsel had termed these allegations as baseless.
Disha, Nikita and Shantanu were questioned face to face
Disha Ravi’s police remand ended on Monday itself. After this, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate extended one day police remand. However, the Delhi Police had sought a 5-day remand from the court, which was to end on Tuesday. That is why Delhi Police on Tuesday questioned Disha Ravi in front of co-accused Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk in this case. Police say that Disha had put all the charges in the case on Shantanu and Nikita, so it was necessary to sit face to face and inquire.
Disha was arrested from Bengaluru
The Delhi Police arrested the direction on 14 February in Bengaluru. According to Delhi Police, Disha, who was involved in starting the Friday for Future campaign, circulated the toolkit by creating a Google Dock. For this, he formed the WhatsApp group. She was also involved in drafting this toolkit and shared the toolkit with Greta Thunberg.
