A non-bailable warrant has been issued against Bombay High Court lawyer Nikita Jacob and an individual named Shantanu in connection with the Farmer Protest Toolkit investigation.

As per journalist Raj Shekhar Jha, Nikita Jacob is currently absconding. According to reports, Jacob is also an alleged AAP activist who was involved in editing the toolkit. Social media users were quick to track down her Twitter account which was deactivated soon after.

As per ANI, Poetic Justice Foundation's founder M O Dhaliwal had contacted Jacob to help create a Twitter storm over the protests ahead of Republic Day. A zoom meeting was also carried out over the same and was attended by individuals including Mo Dhaliwal, Jacob and Disha Ravi.

The police had earlier gone to Jacob's house and examined her electronic gadgets. The cops also wanted to question Jacob but she was not available and is now believed to be absconding.

These non-bailable warrants have been issued after the Delhi Police arrested a 21-year-old Bengaluru 'climate activist' Disha Ravi on charges of being one of the contributors to the toolkit.

The infamous toolkit shared by activist Greta Thunberg exposed the international nexus responsible for fuelling the farmer protests along the Delhi Border.
