Disha is one of the founders of the “Friday for Future” campaign, a global climate strike movement that started in August 2018 when Greta Thunberg began a school strike for climate. During the investigation by officers of the special cell, Disha Ravi revealed she edited the toolkit associated with the farmers, and then pushed it ahead.
It may be recalled that on February 4, the Delhi Police had registered a case against the pro-Khalistani creators of a toolkit. It was then shared by Greta Thunberg and others on Twitter in connection with the farmers’ protest, alleging it aimed to wage a “social, cultural and economic war against the Government of India”.
India Today quoted sources as saying that many others will be arrested in the Greta Thunberg ‘toolkit’ case.
