Bengaluru, Feb 23 (PTI) Environmental activists in
Bengaluru on Tuesday welcomed bail for 22-year-old Disha Ravi,
who was arrested in connection with allegedly being involved
in sharing a “toolkit” on social media related to the
Environment activist Leo Saldanha on behalf of the
Coalition For Environment Justice termed the bail a historic
and a constitutional moment.
“It is a historic and constitutional moment because
an Additional Sessions District has used such language, which
one would have expected from higher courts.It reminds of the
role of judiciary.”
“This is the way the judiciary is supposed to work,”
Saldanha said lauding Delhi Additional Sessions court judge
Dharmender Rana who granted bail to Ravi.
While granting bail, the judge observed, “In my
considered opinion, Citizens are conscience keepers of
government in any democratic Nation.They cannot be put behind
the bars simply because they choose to disagree with the State
“The offence of sedition cannot be invoked to
minister to the wounded vanity of the governments,” the court
Advocate Clifton Rozario who handles cases related to
environment issues, also welcomed the bail given to Disha
“The judge has very critically demonstrated what a
witchhunt this entire toolkit controversy is,” he said.
Ravi was arrested on February 13 by a Cyber Cell team
of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi. PTI
