Disha Ravi gets bail in Greta Thunberg Toolkit case
New Delhi, Feb 23: A Delhi Court on Tuesday granted bail to 22-year old climate activist Disha Ravi, who was arrested by the Delhi police in connection with the toolkit case.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana granted relief to Ravi on a personal bond of Rs one lakh and two sureties of like amount.
Ravi was arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi. She was currently in police custody.
The Delhi Police had accused Ravi of creating the online toolkit - a Google document - in support of ongoing farmers' protest in the country and claimed she is part of global conspiracy to create unrest and trigger violence in the guise of farmers' stir against the three agriculture laws.
There is no evidence to show that the toolkit on farmers' protest is responsible for the violence on January 26, activist Disha Ravi's counsel had told the court.
It alleged that Ravi deleted WhatsApp chats, emails and other evidence and was aware of legal actions she could face.
Why did Disha Ravi cover her track and delete evidence if she did not commit wrong, the police said, alleging that his shows her guilty mind and sinister design.
Ravi "was part of the Indian chapter of the global conspiracy to defame India and create unrest in the garb of farmers' protest", it alleged, adding she was in touch and preparing and sharing toolkit with those advocating Khalistan.
"It shows there was a sinister design behind this toolkit," the police told the court.
However, Ravi's lawyer rejected the allegations.
"There is no evidence to link me with Sikhs For Justice, a banned organisation. And even if I (Ravi) meet someone, there is no symbol on him that he is a secessionist," the defence counsel said.
