ABP News has accessed the WhatsApp chats which took place between Greta Thunberg and Disha Ravi after Greta uploaded the original toolkit. The chat reveals that Disha Ravi asked Greta Thunberg ‘not to tweet the toolkit at all’ as it had their names in it. 21 yrs old Disha Ravi, a climate activist from Bengaluru feared that the government might charge her for Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) as the toolkit has her name as the co-author.
Disha Ravi said, “Can we just not say anything at all for a while? I am gonna talk to lawyers. I am sorry but our names are on it. We can literally get UAPA against us. (sic)”
The conversation happened after Greta Thunberg inadvertently put out the “toolkit” in a post on Twitter. She deleted the post later. The Delhi Police is now investigating the case.

The Cyber Cell of the Delhi Police had arrested 21-year-old Disha Ravi on Sunday from Bengaluru, for editing and distributing the contentious toolkit accidentally leaked by Swedish Activist Greta Thunberg. Delhi Crime branch revealed that she was the editor of the ‘toolkit’ Google Doc and a key conspirator in the document’s formulation and dissemination.
Delhi crime branch has also issued a nonbailable warrant against lawyer-activist Nikita Jacob and her associate Shantanu who are absconding after the warrant was issued. Delhi Police said that Disha Ravi, Nikita Jacob, and Shantanu held a Zoom meeting before Republic Day to plan a social media buzz on the tractor rally. Police said that the intention behind the January 26 violence by protesting farmers in New Delhi was to do a “digital strike” and propagate a “toolkit” to malign the image of India.
Nikita Jacob has approached the Bombay High Court for protection from arrest for four weeks. Shantanu has moved the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay High Court seeking transit anticipatory bail. Both the matters will be held today.
