A 21-year-old climate activist from Bengaluru was arrested by Delhi Police for her alleged involvement in spreading the "toolkit" tweeted by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg in support of farmers' protest in Delhi.

She was arrested on Saturday and produced before Patiala House Court on Sunday. "Ravi has been remanded to police custody for 5 days. The Special Cell is investigating the conspiracy behind the google document- Toolkit.

They found that Ravi was one of the editors of the toolkit and also a key conspirator in the document's formulation and dissemination," Indian Express quoted Delhi Police as saying.

Disha Ravi is one of the founders of 'Fridays For Future" campaign, which is a global movement to call on politicians to listen to scientists and take urgent action against climate change and global warming. The movement was started by Thunberg in August 2018 in Sweden.
