Disha Ravi toolkit cse: A Delhi court Friday sent youth activist Disha Ravi, who has been named in the farmers’ protest toolkit probe, to three days of judicial custody. This comes following the expiry of her five-day custody in connection to the same case.

The activist, from Bengaluru, was picked up by Delhi Police from her residence on February 13, for allegedly “editing” the toolkit document shared by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter. This ‘toolkit’ is at the centre of a probe into the violence that erupted in some parts of the farmers’ protest on Republic Day.

So far, three have been named in the toolkit case from India, including Ravi, advocate Nikita Jacob and activist Shantanu Muluk. As per Bar & Bench, Ravi in court “shifted the blame to co-accused.” Authorities claim her three-day custody comes since she needs to be confronted with Muluk, who will join the probe on February 22.

Her custody was sought on grounds of possible “evidence tampering.”

Authorities claim Jacob, Muluk and Ravi created the ‘toolkit,’ which the latter had then sent to Thunberg via Telegram app. The Bengaluru activist faces conspiracy and sedition charges.

Jacob, meanwhile, was on Wednesday granted transit anticipatory bail for three weeks by the Bombay HC, after a non-bailable warrant was issued against her and Muluk. Muluk too got transit anticipatory bail by the court.
