Climate activist Disha Ravi faces one-day police custody

Disha Ravi, a 22-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi who was arrested earlier this month in connection with allegedly being involved in sharing a “toolkit” on social media related to the farmers’ protest, has been sent to one day police custody by a Delhi court.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma, according to media reports, allowed custodial interrogation of Ravi after police said she was required to be confronted with co-accused.

Ravi, who was arrested by Delhi police on February 13 from Bengaluru, was produced before the court on expiry of her three-day judicial custody.

A ‘Toolkit’ is a series of guidelines suggesting how a particular aim can be achieved. Toolkits chart out plans of action explaining topics at hand and offer suggestions that could be followed to achieve particular goals.
