Delhi's Patiala House Court on Tuesday granted bail to 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi, who was arrested on social media for allegedly sharing a 'toolkit' related to farmers' protests. Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana granted this relief to Ravi on a personal bond of one lakh rupees and two sureties of the same amount. He is currently in police custody. During this, Disha Ravi's mother Manjula said that we are very happy and believe in system and law. At the same time, Disha Ravi was released from Tihar Jail around 9 pm on Tuesday night.
Earlier, the court said that there does not appear to be any direct link between Disha Ravi and the banned organization 'Sikh for Justice'. The investigating agency cannot be allowed to further restrict civil liberties on the basis of favorable forecasts. Apparently there is nothing that indicates that Disha Ravi has supported any separatist idea. Also, creating a WhatsApp group or editing a harmless toolkit is not a crime.
Delhi Police made these allegations
The court was told on behalf of Delhi Police that Disha had prepared a toolkit, which was done on the direction of the advocates of Khalistan. All this has been done to tarnish the image of India. Khalistan supporters want to strengthen their flag by bringing this movement in their favor. It was not just a tool kit, but a draft to discredit India.
The police had also told the court that Disha Ravi knew that if he got caught in a legal confusion, his WhatsApp chat and e-mail could become a sore throat, so he deleted all the chats and mails. If Disha did nothing wrong then why did he destroy the evidence to clear his way? This is enough to convict him. Disha Ravi is a major part of the group involved in India's infamy.
Know what happens toolkit
A 'toolkit' is such a document, in which detailed information is given to provide information about an issue and to take steps related to it. Usually, during a major campaign or movement, people participating in it are given directions in it. Its purpose is to give guidelines for activities at the grassroots level to a particular class or target group. The trial court on Friday sent the climate worker to judicial custody for three days after Disha's five-day police custody period ended. Disha was arrested by the Cyber Cell of Delhi Police from Bengaluru on 13 February. A case has been registered under direction on sedition and other charges.
