Disha Ravi part of global conspiracy to defame India: Delhi Police to court

NEW DELHI: Climate activist Disha Ravi was part of the Indian chapter of a global conspiracy to defame the country and create unrest in the garb of farmers protest, the police told a Delhi court on Saturday while opposing her bail plea.


The Delhi Police claimed that Ravi, arrested for allegedly sharing the toolkit about the farmers agitation, was in touch with those advocating Khalistan and helped prepare the Google document which was later tweeted by climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The police told the court that Ravi deleted her WhatsApp chats since she was aware of the legal implications of her actions.


"Why did Disha Ravi cover her track and delete evidence if she did not commit wrong. This shows her guilty mind and sinister design," it told Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana.

 

It further said that the toolkit was part of a larger conspiracy to defame India and cause unrest.
Meanwhile, Disha's lawyer said there is no evidence to link the activist with the banned outfit Sikhs For Justice.


"Disha is not a rebel without a cause. There's a cause of environment, of agriculture and interlink between them," her counsel said.


Her defence told the court that if highlighting the farmers protest globally amounts to "sedition", then it is better to be jailed.


Denying charges that the toolkit is connected to the violence on Republic Day, the defence said that nobody who has been arrested in connection with the Red Fort incident has said that he was inspired by the toolkit.


Delhi Police, probing the "toolkit Google doc, had arrested Ravi, 21, while co-accused Mumbai lawyer Jacob and Pune engineer Shantanu Muluk have been granted pre-arrest bail by court.


A toolkit is a document created to explain any issue. It also provides information on what one needs to do to address the issue. This might include information about petitions, details about protests and mass movements.


The Cyber Cell had lodged an FIR against "pro-Khalistan" creators of the toolkit for waging a "social, cultural and economic war against the government of India".

Ravi was sent to three-day judicial custody on Friday.
