As per recent reports, On Tuesday, While being interrogated by Police, Climate "activist" Nikita Jacob, who is involved in the controversial toolkit document case related to farmers' protest has admitted that there was a Zoom meeting before Republic Day, which was attended by Poetic Justice Foundation (Pro-Khalistan outfit) founder MO Dhaliwal, and other fellow  "activists" including Disha Ravi. 

In a document submitted by Jacob's lawyer to Mumbai police, she claimed that the toolkit was being prepared by Extinction Rebellion (XR) India volunteers for presenting the whole picture with a simple breakdown for an international audience. 

Jacob has also sought protection from arrest for four weeks, interim protection from any coercive action, and a direction to the Delhi Police to share with her a copy of the FIR registered against her.

This comes a day after MO Dhaliwal, the founder of pro-Khalistani Poetic Justice Foundation contacted activist Nikita Jacob through his colleague Puneet, a Canadian citizen, to create an Anti-India storm on Twitter ahead of Republic Day, according to the police sources.

Earlier, an investigation into the toolkit conspiracy has revealed that a much deeper conspiracy is associated with the Google document. According to the sources, four days ago, the Special Cell team went to Nikita Jacob's house and examined her electronic gadgets. Delhi police told her that they would again question her but she is currently not available.

Previously, 21-year-old Disha Ravi was arrested from Bengaluru in connection with the formulation and distribution of the Toolkit document, in the ongoing farmers' protest. She was one of the editors of the toolkit document.

Disha was later sent to five days of police custody. Later on Monday, the police also issued a non-bailable warrant against activists Nikita Jacob and Shantanu, a resident of Beed in Maharashtra.

According to the Delhi Police, the editors of the toolkit collaborated with the pro-Khalistani Poetic Justice Foundation to spread disaffection against the Indian State. Disha was the one who shared the Toolkit Doc with Greta Thunberg.
