'Scanty and sketchy evidence': Delhi court grants bail to Disha Ravi

21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi leaves after a hearing in a 'toolkit' case at Patiala House Court, in New Delhi
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 granted relief to Ravi on a personal bond of Rs one lakh and two sureties of like amount.

"Considering the scanty and sketchy investigation, i do not find any palpable reason to breach the rule of bail for a 22-year-old girl who has absolutely no criminal antecedents," said Additional sessions judge Dharmender Rana.

Ravi was arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi. She was currently in police custody.
