A climate activist from Bengaluru Disha Ravi has been arrested by the Delhi Police on charges of spreading the controversial farmer protest toolkit. The 21-year-old activist was arrested yesterday (13 February).
As per reports, the Delhi Police has claimed that Ravi edited the toolkit by adding a few items and sent it ahead. The report claims that more arrests are expected in the coming days over the toolkit, with the cops saying that a Khalistani group is behind its creation.
The toolkit was first shared by activist Greta Thunberg who soon deleted it after social media users exposed the internationally coordinated farmer protests.
Besides coordinating online support for the farmer protest, the toolkit contained suggested tweets for celebrities - one of which was copy pasted by singer Rihanna.
