The Bombay High Court today granted Mumbai lawyer and environmental activist Nikita Jacob transit bail for three weeks in connection with an case filed by the Delhi police in connection with the Toolkit matter. In case of arrest, she will be released on a personal bond of Rs 25,000 and one surety of like amount.
The Delhi police had on Monday alleged that she, along with Bengaluru environmentalist Dishar Ravi and Maharashtra engineer Shantanu Muluk, had created a toolkit meant to tarnish India’s image. In the process, they were allegedly in direct touch with “pro-Khalistani elements”.
The toolkit was meant to garner international support for the ongoing farmers’ protest against three new central farm laws.
