Disha Ravi was sent to custody as part of the police probe into violence on January 26 in the national capital during the tractor march called by farmers protesting against three new farm laws.
On Monday, a Delhi Court had granted the 21-year-old climate activist one-day police remand.
She was produced before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Dr Pankaj Sharma’s court at the end of her three days of judicial custody.
Delhi Police had sought five-day remand in yesterday’s hearing at Patiala House Court. The 21-year-old activist was arrested from Bengaluru in connection with the formulation and dissemination of the ‘toolkit’ document, in the ongoing farmers’ protest. Disha Ravi was one of the editors of the ‘toolkit’ Google document.
On February 3, Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg had shared this ‘toolkit’ in a tweet, which she later deleted. Greta had also extended support to the protest by farmer unions on the borders of Delhi against the new farm laws.
