NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 23: A Delhi court on Tuesday granted bail to 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi, arrested in connection with allegedly being involved in sharing a “toolkit” on social media related to the farmers’ protest.
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.
Police had alleged that the “toolkit” was part of a global conspiracy to create unrest and trigger violence in India in the garb of the farmers’ protest against the agri 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.
“If highlighting farmers’ protest globally is sedition, I’m better in jail,” Ravi said through her counsel on Saturday.
