Toolkit Row: Delhi Police Teams Up In Maharashtra To Arrest Lawyer, Activist

New Delhi: A day after Disha Ravi was taken into police custody, a Delhi court issued non-bailable warrants against Nikita Jacob (29), a Mumbai-based lawyer, and Shantanu Muluk (31), an engineer from Beed in Marathwada — prompting them to immediately approach the Bombay high court on Monday for protection from arrest.

Delhi Police said it sought a warrant against Jacob after she absconded from her residence in Mumbai while being questioned. However, Jacob, in her petition, expressed “apprehension” that “under the guise of investigation she might be arrested in a false and frivolous case”. She said she feared police action “due to political vendetta and media trial”.

Delhi Police said search warrants were issued against Jacob and Muluk after a technical probe established that they held several meetings on Zoom along with Ravi and others to draft a document for circulation that had secessionist and pro-Khalistani content embedded into it through links and text.

Jacob’s application said she had “not committed any crime, as appears to have been alleged or otherwise”.
Nikita Jacob lawyers said Delhi Police’s non-bailable warrants were issued on the “wrong pretext” that she was absconding.

Jacob said, “It is difficult for women to travel to other states and to defend themselves with the cloud of fear of getting arrested in transit on the basis of this frivolous/ false complaint.”

Two laptops and an iPhone were found with documents, the Delhi police commissioner said.

The Delhi team was accompanied by a constable from Vanrai police station. “Keeping in mind that the person whose premises were being searched as per court orders was a woman, the investigating team wound up the day’s search and requested Nikita to make herself available at her house on the next morning. She gave a written undertaking to remain present,” Nath said.
