A 21-year-old climate activist has been arrested from Bengaluru for being allegedly involved in sharing the “toolkit” related to the farmer’s protest on social media, police said on Sunday.
A Delhi court on Sunday remanded 21-year-old “climate activist” Disha Ravi to five days police custody following her arrest in connection with alleged spreading a “toolkit” related to the farmers’ protest.
Disha Ravi was arrested by a Cyber Cell team of the Delhi Police from Bengaluru on Saturday, a senior police officer told to the media.
The Cyber Cell had lodged an FIR against “pro-Khalistan” creators of the “toolkit” for waging a “social, cultural and economic war against the Government of India”.
The case against unnamed persons was registered on charges of criminal conspiracy, sedition and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code, the police said.
Earlier, Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg had posted the “toolkit” in a tweet which she later deleted. She had also extended support to protest by farmer unions on the borders of Delhi against the new farm laws.
According to the police, the “toolkit” has a particular section that mentions “digital strike through hashtags on or before January 26, tweet storms on January 23 onwards, physical action on January 26 and watch-out or join farmers march into Delhi and back to borders”.
