Greta Thunberg ‘toolkit’ case: Disha Ravi, Bengaluru youth Activist, arrested


Delhi Police has arrested a 21-year-old Bengaluru Activist Disha Ravi in connection with the ‘toolkit‘ on farmer protests, which was shared on Twitter by teen climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Delhi Police alleged that Disha Ravi edited and shared the disputed “toolkit” which was shared by Greta Thunberg.

Disha Ravi is one of the founders of Fridays for Future India which is an international movement of school students who skip classes on Fridays to join demonstrations demanding politicians to act against climate change.

Delhi Police on february 4 has registered an FIR on charges of “sedition”, “criminal conspiracy” and “promoting hatred” against the creators of the ‘toolkit’. The police said that the sequence of events in the farmer protests, including the January 26 violence during the tractor rally, was a “copycat” of the alleged action plan shared in the toolkit.
