Bengaluru-based climate activist

Disha Ravi

has been granted bail by a Session Court of Patiala House Court.
The Court granted her bail on two sureties of Rupees one lakh each.
The order was reserved by Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana on February 20.
A Delhi court on Monday had sent Ravi to police custody for one day as it said she has to be confronted with other accused in the case -- Nikita Jacob and Shantanu Muluk.
Jacob and Muluk joined the probe on Monday. They were questioned at the Delhi Police Cyber Cell office in Dwarka.
Disha’s one-day custody also ended today.
Disha was arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru and brought to Delhi. She was booked on sedition and other charges.
