Activist Disha Ravi was, on February 22, remanded to a fresh one-day police custody. The police, in its plea before the Patiala House Court, had sought five days of custody for her alleged involvement in the "toolkit" case.

The prosecution told the bench that her custody was necessitated to confront her with lawyer Nikita Jacob and engineer Shantanu Muluk, who are co-accused in the case.

Senior advocate Siddharth Agarwal, who appeared for Disha, opposed the Delhi Police's plea, claiming that the accused has already been in custody for the past eight days.

The 22-year-old was sent to a five-day police remand on February 14, followed by another three-day judicial custody.

Nikita and Muluk, the other two activists accused in the toolkit case, joined the probe on February 22 and were being questioned at the Delhi Police's Cyber cell office in Dwarka, a senior police officer said.

The Delhi Police, probing the toolkit Google doc backing the farmers' agitation shared by climate activist Greta Thunberg, had arrested Disha on February 13 while Jacob and Muluk were granted pre-arrest bail by a court last week.

"Both Jacob and Muluk were served notice to join the probe and are currently being quizzed in connection with their alleged role in the toolkit case," the officer said.
