    Disha Ravi, the 21- year-old environment activist, who was arrested in connection with allegedly being associated with sharing a “toolkit” on social media related to the farmers’ demonstration, was granted bail by a Delhi court on Tuesday (February 23).

    Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana allowed the bail to the implicated on the condition of two surety of Rs 1 lakh each.

    The Delhi police had on Saturday (February 20) stated the court that the ‘Toolkit’ was an ominous design to libel India and cause violence. Hearing of Disha’s bail plea had continued for 3 long hours.

    ” Poetic Justice Foundation and Sikhs For Justice in order to conceal their participation used Disha Ravi as a front to carry out the wicked activity,” Additional Lawyer General SV Raju told the court, including that these organisations are connected to the Khalistani movement.

    The Delhi Authorities even more informed the city court that Ravi covered her track and erased evidence like contents of the Toolkit and a WhatsApp group, which the general public district attorney emphasized revealed her “guilty mind”.

    Ravi’s counsel Supporter Siddharth Agarwal, nevertheless, claimed there is no proof linking the Toolkit to the violence during the farmers’ march on January 26.

    Ravi faces charges of conspiracy and sedition in the ‘Toolkit’ conspiracy case associated to the farmers’ agitation and was apprehended from Bengaluru on February 13.

    The Delhi Police have contended that the google file tweeted by Swedish environment activist Greta Thunberg to back the farmers’ demonstration and then deleted, was developed by Ravi and two other activists– Jacob and Muluk.
