Mumbai: The arrest of Disha Ravi, a 21-year-old climate activist by Delhi Police, has triggered widespread outrage with politicians, activists and academics across the country calling for her immediate release.

The Delhi Police on Sunday said Disha Ravi was arrested for allegedly sharing with environmentalist Greta Thunberg the “toolkit” related to the farmer’s protest against the Centre’s three farm laws and termed her “key conspirator” in the document’s formulation and dissemination.

Condemning the arrest of the 21-year-old climate activist by the Delhi Police in their probe into toolkit document case, former Union minister and veteran Congress leader P Chidambaram claimed that India is becoming “the theatre of the absurd”.

“The Indian state must be standing on very shaky foundations if Disha Ravi, a 22 year old student of Mount Carmel college and a climate activist, has become a threat to the nation. A ‘took kit’ to support the farmers’ protest is more dangerous than the intrusion by Chinese troops into Indian territory! India is becoming the theatre of the absurd and it is sad that the Delhi Police has become a tool of the oppressors,” P Chidambaram wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

The Congress leader also urged students and youth to raise their voices to protest against the “authoritarian regime”.

His party colleague, Digvijaya Singh went on to term the arrest of climate activist Disha Ravi as shameful. “Who’s 21-yr-old Disha Ravi arrested over ‘toolkit’ shared by Greta Thunberg? Absolutely shameful. A young Activist concerned with Global Climate Change being prosecuted on weird charges!!(sic)” Congress leader Digvijaya Singh tweeted.
