Climate Activist Disha Ravi granted bail in ‘Toolkit’ case

New Delhi: Disha Ravi, the 22-year-old climate activist arrested February 13 in connection with the “toolkit” case, was granted bail by a Delhi Sessions Court on Tuesday afternoon – subject to provision of two sureties of ₹ 1 lakh each.

“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,” Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana said in his bail order.

Shortly afterwards a second judge – Pankaj Sharma, the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate of the Patiala House Court – disposed off a Delhi Police application seeking extended custody; the police had sought further four days of custody.
