Disha Ravi, Shantanu & Nikita created toolkit doc to tarnish India’s image: Delhi Police

Addressing a press conference, Joint Commissioner of Police (Cyber) Prem Nath claimed that Disha deleted a WhatsApp group she created to spread the "toolkit" and alleged that they aimed to tarnish the image of India.

The Delhi Police on Monday claimed that climate activist Disha Ravi along with Shantanu and Nikita Jacob created the "toolkit" document related to the farmers' protest and shared it on social media.

The Police said that the 22-year-old Disha, who was arrested on Sunday, shared the “toolkit” with teen climate activist Greta Thunberg via the Telegram app.

"Disha, Shantanu, and Nikita created and edited the toolkit. Disha sent the toolkit to Greta Thunberg through the Telegram app. Disha deleted a WhatsApp group which she created to spread the toolkit. The due procedure was followed during Disha's arrest," he said.

Nath claimed that Nikita and Shantanu attended a zoom meeting organised by the 'pro-Khalistan' group Poetic Justice Foundation (PJF) and added that Jacob was also one of the editors of the "toolkit" document.

The Delhi Police earlier said non-bailable warrants have been issued against Jacob and Shantanu for allegedly sharing the "toolkit" on social media.

The Delhi court on Sunday sent Disha Ravi on a five days police remand.

Thunberg had shared the "toolkit" to lend her support to the farmers' agitation against the three farm reform laws. In the document, various urgent actions, including creating a Twitter storm and protesting outside Indian embassies, were listed which were needed to be taken to support the farmers' protest.

The toolkit has been cited by some critics as "proof" of her conspiracy to fuel protests in India.
