Ms. Jacob’s appeal for four weeks of arrest security will be heard today by the Bombay High Court just a day after the Delhi Police released warrants for arrest towards activists Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk in the case regarding a digital document or a “toolkit”. This was posted by teen climate campaigner Greta Thunberg in favor of farmers’ protests. All three created, compiled, and shared the Google document, the Delhi Police said.
Before Republic Day, imprisoned activist Disha Ravi, 22, and the two more activists held a Video conference via Zoom to prepare a social media buzz. On Monday, the Delhi police told that his buzz was on the tractor rally of the farmers.
