A Delhi Magistrate on Sunday remanded a 21-year-old climate activist Disha Ravi arrested from Bengaluru to 5-day custody of the Delhi police in a case registered over the "toolkit" shared by international activist Greta Thunberg related to the farmer's protest on social media.
Disha Ravi, one of the founders of 'Fridays For Future' campaign in India, arrested from her house located within Soladevanahalli police station limits in Bengaluru by a Special Cell of the Delhi Police on Saturday, reported The NewsMinute.
The Fridays For Future movement reportedly began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg and other young activists sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis, according to the website. The group comprises college students and young working professionals who are working towards highlighting the climate crisis and demanding leaders to find solutions.
The Cyber Cell of the Delhi Police had lodged an FIR on February 4 against unnamed persons over the 'toolkit' shared in connection with coordination of farmers protests. The case against unnamed persons was registered on charges of criminal conspiracy, sedition and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code.
