Delhi court sends Disha Ravi to three-day judicial custody in Toolkit case


(Online Desk)

Delhi court on Friday evening sent 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi to three-day judicial custody in the toolkit document case.

The Delhi Police had sought her custody, saying she needed to be confronted with co-accused in the case.

Facing charges of conspiracy and sedition, Ravi was arrested from her Bengaluru home last week.

Earlier in the day, the Delhi HC¬†had said certain media coverage of investigation in the FIR against climate activist Disha Ravi for her alleged involvement in sharing a toolkit backing farmers’ protest indicates “sensationalism and prejudicial reporting”, but declined to order removal of any such content at this stage.

Justice Prathiba M Singh said the interim plea for removal of such news content and tweets by Delhi Police would be considered at a later stage.

The court, however, asked media houses to ensure that no leaked investigation material is broadcast as it could affect the probe and directed Delhi Police to abide by its stand on affidavit that it has not leaked nor intends to leak any probe details to the press.
