Delhi police have accused climate activist Disha Ravi, lawyer Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk of doing a “digital strike” by promoting a toolkit dock to tarnish India’s image. Controversy erupted when popular climate activist Greta Thunberg shared the toolkit Doc on Twitter.
The Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court yesterday granted anticipatory bail to activist Shantanu Muluk for a period of ten days.
“Disha, Shantanu and Nikita created and edited the toolkit. Disha sent the toolkit to Greta Thunberg through the Telegram app. Disha deleted a WhatsApp group which she created to spread the toolkit. The due procedure was followed during Dishal’s arrest,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Cyber) Prem Nath had claimed.
Disha Ravi was sent to five days of police remand on Sunday by a Delhi court in Mumbai.
