The Court has granted bail to Disha on a condition to furnish two sureties of Rupees One Lakh each.
The additional session judge Dharmendra Rana said, “Considering the scanty and sketchy evidence on record, I do not find any palpable reason to breach the rule of bail for a 22-year-old girl who has absolutely no criminal antecedent.”
A Second judge – Pankaj Sharma soon disposed of an application by Delhi Police seeking extended custody of Ms Ravi. The Delhi police had sought further four-day custody of Disha Ravi. Ms Ravi has already spent six days in police custody and two in jail.
Disha Ravi was arrested by Cyber Cell of Delhi Police from Bengaluru. She was arrested for allegedly sharing with Greta Thunberg the ‘toolkit’ related to the farmer’s protest. The Delhi police added that she collaborated to “spread disaffection against the Indian state”. The climate activist was sent to five-day police custody in the Greta Thunberg Toolkit case.
