Police in India’s capital, New Delhi, have arrested an Indian woman for editing a document promoted by the Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg in support of India’s ongoing farmers’ protests.
Police arrested Disha Ravi, 22, over the weekend in Bengaluru, where she resides. Authorities later transported her from the southern Indian city to the national capital for questioning. A New Delhi court on February 14 ordered that Ravi remain in police custody for five days.
Indian government officials said Ravi’s arrest was part of a New Delhi police investigation into how a group of farmers managed to storm the city’s historic Red Fort on January 26. Police in the national capital have registered a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy against Ravi. India’s sedition law dates to its colonial era, when it was ruled by Britain, and carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
