Activist Disha Ravi who was under police custody in connection with the toolkit case has now approached the Delhi High Court seeking protection of her Right to Privacy.

She has requested the High Court to direct the Police Authorities to publicly not share her private WhatsApp chats with any third party.

Recently, the private chats between Disha Ravi and Greta Thunberg were leaked wherein the former asked the latter to delete the tweet that disclosed the toolkit document regarding the farmers protest.

Ravi was arrested from her house in Bengaluru following Thunberg’s tweet and is now under police custody since 14th February 2021.

Disha Ravi along with Nikita Jacob and Shantanu was alleged to have been involved in a conspiracy relating to the Farmers’ Protest in Delhi. The revelation of the Toolkit by Climate Campaigner Greta Thunberg on 3rd February 2021 heated up the issue.

Consequently, Ravi was arrested while Jacob and Shantanu have been granted anticipatory bail by the Bombay High Court.
