A fresh anticipatory bail plea has been filed by Toolkit case accused Shantanu Muluk in a Delhi court on Tuesday. The court will hear the plea on Wednesday.
Shantanu, along with Nikita Jacob and Disha Ravi, have been taken to the Cypad cell of Delhi police in Dwarka for questioning in connection with the probe into the toolkit Google doc backing the ongoing farmers’ agitation.
On Monday, Disha Ravi was sent to one-day police custody. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Dr. Pankaj Sharma has passed the orders after Ravi was produced before him at the end of her three-day judicial remand.
The police had demanded five-days police custody to confront her along with co-accused Nikita and Shantanu, who joined the investigation earlier.
Earlier on Saturday, a sessions court reserved its order on the petition filed by Ravi seeking bail. Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana reserved the order in the matter and posted it for pronouncement on Tuesday.
Ravi was arrested on February 13 from her Bengaluru residence for her involvement in creation of the Toolkit concerning the farmers’ protest and the violence that broke out in the capital on January 26 after the tractor rally.
