Here is the top news of February 23, 2021:
A Delhi court on Tuesday granted bail to climate activist Disha Ravi, arrested from Bengaluru on February 13, in a Google toolkit document case, saying there was not enough material to keep the 22-year-old in custody.
Additional Sessions Judge Dharmender Rana, who reserved the order on Saturday, set Disha free on bail on the condition of her furnishing two sureties of Rs 1 lakh each. The court also ordered her to cooperate with the investigation into the FIR and not to leave the country.
The Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court on Tuesday granted interim bail on medical grounds to ailing poet-activist Varavara Rao in connection with a 2016 Surjagarh iron ore mine arson case.
Rao, 82, and advocate Surendra Gadling were arrested by the Gadchiroli police in Maharashtra in February 2019 in connection with the case.
The sale of Coronil tablets of Patanjali will not be allowed in Maharashtra without "proper certification", state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Tuesday.
The statement came a day after the Indian Medical Association (IMA) expressed shock over the "blatant lie of WHO certification" for Coronil tablets which Patanjali claims is an evidence-based medicine to fight Covid-19.
