New Delhi, Feb 23 (PTI) A Delhi court on Tuesday granted bail to climate activist Disha Ravi, arrested in connection with allegedly being involved in sharing a 'toolkit' on social media related to the farmers' protest, terming evidence produced by police as “scanty and sketchy”.

Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana, who granted relief to Ravi on a personal bond of Rs one lakh and two sureties of like amount, noted that the accused had “absolutely no criminal antecedents.” “Considering the scanty and sketchy evidence, I do not find any palpable reason to breach the rule of bail for a 22-year-old girl who have absolutely no criminal antecedent,” the judge said.

Ravi was arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi. Her police custody ends today. PTI UK RKS RKS
