Disha Ravi Moves Delhi High Court to Restrain Leaks to Media

by: Rahul Maheshwari

Climate activist Disha Ravi, who was on Sunday sent to a 5-day police custody for allegedly creating the ‘Toolkit Docs’, approached Delhi High Court on Thursday to restrain Delhi police from leaking any investigation material, including alleged contents of private chats/communication by the petitioner to any third party, including the media.

Ravi was arrested by the Delhi police for allegedly creating and editing the ‘Toolkit Docs’ tweeted by anti-climate change campaigner Greta Thunberg.┬áIn simple terms, a toolkit is a collection of resources for front-line workers engaged in a task or campaign. In this case, the toolkit tried to “explain the farmers protest” against the three farm laws passed by the Narendra Modi government.
