Non-bailable warrants issued against 2 in Toolkit document case

Non-bailable warrants have been issued against two people for allegedly sharing the “toolkit” related to the farmer’s protest on social media, the Delhi Police said on Monday, two days after it arrested climate activist Disha Ravi in connection with the case.

The toolkit has been cited by some critics as a “proof” of her conspiracy to fuel protests in India. 

The 21-year-old activist was arrested on Saturday from Bengaluru and sent to five days police remand on Sunday by a Delhi court here.

The two suspects against whom the non-bailable warrants have been issued include Nikita Jacob and Shantanu, police said, adding that the duo was allegedly involved in preparing the document and was in direct touch with “pro-Khalistani elements”.

“Non-bailable warrants have been issued against Nikita Jacob and Shantanu. The two are wanted in connection with the toolkit case. They are suspected to be involved in preparing the documents and were also in direct interaction with pro-Khalistani elements,” a senior police officer said.

Nikita Jacob moves HC for transit bail

Jacob approached the Bombay High Court on Monday seeking transit anticipatory bail.

A Delhi court has issued a non-bailable warrant against Jacob and another accused in the case.

Jacob’s plea seeking urgent hearing was mentioned before the Bombay High Court’s single bench of Justice P D Naik on Monday.

The high court said it would hear the plea on Tuesday.

Jacob in her plea sought transit anticipatory bail for a period of four weeks so that she can approach the court concerned in Delhi to apply for a pre-arrest bail.

The Delhi police on Saturday arrested 21-year-old environmental activist Disha Ravi from Bengaluru in connection with the case.

She was on Sunday produced before a Delhi court which remanded her in police custody for five days.

Greta Thunberg, a teen climate activist, had shared the “toolkit” to lend her support to the farmers’ agitation near Delhi borders against the Centre’s three agri laws.

In the document, various urgent actions, including creating a Twitter storm and protesting outside Indian embassies, were listed which were needed to be taken to support the farmers’ protest.

The toolkit has been cited by some critics as a “proof” of her conspiracy to fuel protests in India.
