The Greta Thunberg "Toolkit" case gets a Bengaluru angle. A 21-year-old climate activist from the city has been arrested by the Delhi Police in connection to the "toolkit" shared by teen climate activist Greta and others on Twitter to show support for the farmers' protest.
Disha Ravi is one of the founders of the "Friday for Future" campaign. It has been alleged that she edited the toolkit and sent it ahead. She was picked up from her house in Soladevanahalli area of Bengaluru.
Greta Thunberg "Toolkit" case:
The Delhi Police had registered a First Information Report on February 4 on charges of sedition, criminal conspiracy and promoting hatred among groups under Sections 124-A, 120-A and 153-A of the Indian Penal Code against the "creators" of the toolkit, which was shared by climate activist Greta Thunberg.
According to police, the unfolding of events during farmers' protest around January 26, including violence near Red Fort, allegedly revealed copycat execution of the 'action plan' detailed in the toolkit.
The police said that the intention of the creators appeared to create disharmony among various social, religious and cultural groups and encourage disaffection and ill-will against the central government and aimed at waging social, cultural and economic war against India.
