A Delhi court on Monday sent 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi to one day police custody in connection with the Toolkit case.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Dr. Pankaj Sharma passed the orders after Disha was produced before him at the end of her three days judicial remand.
The police had demanded five days of police custody of Disha, saying that they wanted to confront her along with two other co-accused Nikita and Shantanu who joined the investigation today.
However, advocate Siddharth Aggarwal, appearing for Disha opposed the demand, stating that the confrontation could occur even when she is also in judicial custody.
“What’s new here is that you’re changing the nature of my remand from JC to PC,” he said on behalf of Disha.
Earlier on Saturday, a sessions court reserved its order on the petition filed by climate activist Disha Ravi seeking bail in connection with Toolkit case concerning the farmers’ protest and the violence that broke out in the capital on January 26 after the tractor rally. Ravi was arrested on February 13 from her Bengaluru residence for her involvement in creation of the Toolkit.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana reserved the order in the matter and posted it for pronouncement on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, both Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Mulukh have joined the probe and are currently being interrogated at the CyPad (Cyber Cell) of the Delhi Police in South West Delhi’s Dwarka.
