Toolkit Case: Delhi Court Grants Bail To Disha Ravi, Terms Evidence As Scanty And Sketchy
A Delhi court on Tuesday granted bail to climate activist Disha Ravi, arrested in connection with allegedly being involved in sharing a "toolkit" on social media related to the farmers' protest, terming evidence produced by police as scanty and sketchy.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana, who granted relief to Ravi on a personal bond of Rs one lakh and two sureties of like amount, noted that the accused had absolutely no criminal antecedents.
Considering the scanty and sketchy evidence, I do not find any palpable reason to breach the rule of bail for a 22-year-old girl who have absolutely no criminal antecedent, the judge said.
Ravi was arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi.
Her police custody ends today.
