Disha Ravi, the 22-year-old climate activist was granted bail by a Delhi Sessions Court on Tuesday afternoon – subject to provision of two sureties of Rs 1 lakh each in connection with the “toolkit” case.
“Considering the scanty and sketchy evidence on file, I don’t find any palpable reason to breach the rule of bail for a 22-year-old girl who has completely no criminal antecedent,” Additional Sessions Judge Dharmendra Rana stated in his bail order.
Ravi was arrested on 13 February and has already spent six days in police custody and two in jail.
Bail was granted today after the court reserved its order on Saturday.
Delhi Police, opposing grant of bail, stated Ravi might tamper proof if she had been to be released.
