Climate activist Disha Ravi, who was arrested for alleged involvement in sharing a toolkit backing the ongoing farmers’ protest, was on Monday sent to a fresh one-day police custody in sedition case.
Earlier in the day, Ravi, 22, was produced before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Dr Pankaj Sharma in Patiala House Court at the end of her judicial custody. Delhi Police had sought five-day remand from the court.
Ravi, who is facing charges of conspiracy and sedition, last week moved the Delhi High Court seeking to restrain police from leaking to the media any probe material in relation to the FIR lodged against her. The petition also seeks to restrain the media from publishing the content or extract of any private chats, including those on WhatsApp, between her and third parties.
The “toolkit Google document”, which was tweeted by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and then deleted, was allegedly created by Ravi and two other activists named Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk. The police arrested Ravi, while Jacob and Muluk have been granted pre-arrest bail by court.
A toolkit is a document created to explain any issue. It also provides information on what one needs to do to address the issue. This might include information about petitions, details about protests and mass movements.
