Disha seeks HC directions against leak of investigation
On Thursday, climate activist Disha Ravi approached the Delhi High Court seeking a direction to the police not to leak any investigation material in relation to the 'Toolkit' case to the media.
The 21-year-old activist was arrested from Bengaluru last week in connection with allegedly editing and sharing a 'toolkit' on social media related to the farmers' protest and was remanded to five-day police custody.
In the application in the High Court, she has sought, "...directing Delhi Police not to leak any investigation material in relation to FIR No. 49/20, PS Special Cell, including alleged contents of private chats or communication by the petitioner to any third party, including the media."
Besides that, she has sought appropriate action against News18, India Today and Times Now and satellite TV channels and restrain them from publishing the contents or extracts of any alleged private chats (including WhatsApp chats) between her and third parties.
The Cyber Cell had lodged an FIR against "pro-Khalistan" creators of the "toolkit" for waging a "social, cultural and economic war against the Government of India".
