According to CyPAD Delhi Police, the controversial “toolkit” was collaborated with the pro-Khalistani Poetic Justice Foundation to spread disaffection against the Indian State.

Ravi, who is perusing her graduation, is believed to have shared the Toolkit Doc with Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg and later asked Thunberg to remove the main document after its incriminating details accidentally got into the public domain, alleged Delhi Police.

On February 4, the Delhi Police lodged a case over “toolkit” tweeted by climate activist Greta Thunberg, which helped draw global attention to the protest. As per the Delhi Police, the toolkit was found on a social media handle ahead of the violence and indicates a conspiracy behind the events of January 26.

After her arrest Ravi was presented before a Delhi court on Sunday where she was awarded five days of police custody. During her court hearing, the young climate warrior broke down inside the courtroom and told the judge that she has edited only two lines and she wanted to support the farmers’ protest.
