Meanwhile,  Delhi Police Commissioner SN Srivastava on Tuesday said that all procedures were followed in the arrest of activist Disha Ravi for her alleged involvement in preparing a toolkit that details support for farmers protesting against the Central Government’s agricultural laws.

“As far as Disha’s arrest is concerned, it was done as per the procedures,” Srivastava told media here. “Law does not differentiate between a 22-year-old and a 50-year-old. She was produced before a court which sent her to 5-day Police custody,” Srivastava said.

He argued that it is incorrect to say that there were lapses in the arrest.

“It is false when people say that there were lapses in the arrest,” he added.

Without divulging further details, the Police Commissioner said that investigation into the ‘Toolkit’ document case is underway.
