'Toolkit' case: Delhi court sends Disha Ravi to 1-day police custody

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday sent 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi, arrested in connection with allegedly being involved in sharing a "toolkit" on social media related to the farmers' protest, to one-day police custody.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma allowed custodial interrogation of Disha after police said she was required to be confronted with co-accused.

Disha was produced before the court on expiry of her three-day judicial custody.

The court on Friday had sent her to judicial custody after police had said her custodial interrogation was not required for the time being.

The agency had said that it would seek her further custodial interrogation once co-accused -- Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk -- join the interrogation on February 22.

Disha Ravi was arrested by Delhi police on February 13 from Bengaluru.
