Disha Ravi, a graduate from Mount Carmel college in Bengaluru, currently works for a company that produces plant-based food. On February 4, Special Cell of Delhi Police had registered a case against the creators of the ‘toolkit’ on farmer protests under serious sections including sedition, criminal conspiracy and promoting hatred among groups under Sections 124A, 120A and 153 A of the Indian Penal Code.
The ‘toolkit’ was initially shared by Greta Thunberg before she proceeded to delete the tweet. The ‘toolkit’ revealed an elaborate effort to tarnish India’s reputation globally by Khalistani organisations.
