The Delhi police on Tuesday said in a city court that Pune-based engineer Shantanu Muluk could not substantiate the nature of work and activities for which he was receiving 600 pounds every month from a United Kingdom-based company for working as a consultant.

Muluk, environment activist Disha Ravi and Mumbai-based lawyer Nikita Jacob were booked by the Delhi Police in the alleged conspiracy behind the violence during the tractors rally taken out by farmers protesting against the three Central farm laws on January 26. The three were booked for sedition, promoting hatred among groups and criminal conspiracy under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) after the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg tweeted a ‘toolkit’.

Delhi Police’s special cell, while opposing Muluk’s anticipatory bail plea, alleged before Additonal Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana that he participated in a conspiracy that “stretched across continents and covered people of multiple nationalities”.

The judge said no coercive action will be taken till March 15 against Muluk and co-accused Mumbai lawyer Nikita Jacob, whose pre-arrest bail plea, was also heard simultaneously.

In a reply filed in the court on Tuesday, the police have claimed that Muluk is receiving routine foreign remittances from a person named Christopher Mills, a resident of UK, while working as a volunteer for a company named Climate 2025, of which very limited information is available on the internet.

The police said Muluk has “failed to satisfactorily explain the actions and activities that he undertook in lieu of the funds received on a monthly basis”.

Muluk’s lawyer Sarim Naved refused to comment on the allegations.
