New Delhi: A Delhi court asked the cops to produce evidence and not go by “surmises or conjectures” when they opposed climate activist Disha Ravi’s bail plea on Saturday. They accused her of being linked to those advocating Khalistan.

Police maintained that Ravi was readying the toolkit and was part of a global conspiracy to defame India and create unrest in the garb of the farmers’ protest, reported The Times of India.

The court said the toolkit was “not innocent, not innocuous” and acted as a gateway to online links defaming India.

However, the argument couldn’t convince additional sessions judge Dharmender Rana. The judge flooded additional solicitor general SV Raju with questions and demanded evidence. “What is a toolkit? Can it be incriminating in itself ? What exactly is the evidence linking this lady to the January 26 violence?” asked the court.

“Is there any evidence or are we to go by surmises and conjectures?” the court asked. It later posted the bail plea for orders on February 23. ASG Raju submitted that it was not just a simple toolkit.

“The real plan was to defame India and create unrest here… she was aware of the criminality of her actions”. According to police, a thorough probe is being carried out which will reveal a “sinister design”.

“Why did Disha Ravi cover her tracks and delete evidence if she did not commit wrong?” the prosecution said, alleging that this shows her guilt and sinister design.
