Probe Against ‘Toolkit’, Not Greta Thunberg: Delhi Police

New Delhi: The Delhi police on Thursday, said that its investigation into an “overseas conspiracy” enmeshed in the farmer protests was not against Greta Thunberg but a “toolkit” that she had tweeted, allegedly linked to a “Khalistani group”.

“Delhi Police has taken cognizance of a toolkit document found on a social media handle that predates and indicates a copycat execution of a conspiracy behind the January 26 violence. The call was to wage economic, social, cultural and regional war against India,” Delhi Police Special Commissioner Praveer Ranjan said, referring to a Republic Day tractor rally that dissolved into chaos and clashes in the capital.

“We have registered a case for spreading disaffection against the government of India – it’s regarding sedition – and disharmony between groups on religious, social and cultural grounds, and criminal conspiracy to give shape to such a plan,” the officer added.

Asked whether Greta Thunberg, 18, had been named in the FIR, he clarified: “We have not named anybody in the FIR. It is only against the creators of the toolkit.”

When reporters pressed him to specify who shared the toolkit, Ranjan said: “You guys are aware of it. I don’t want to name it here.”

Greta had on Wednesday evening tweeted a “toolkit” for supporting the farmers’ protest, but this was focused on the Republic Day protests last week. She deleted the post after a short while.

The Swedish climate activist, on Thursday morning posted a fresh “toolkit” with the message: “Here’s an updated toolkit by people on the ground in India if you want to help. (They removed their previous document as it was outdated).” The new document called for protests on February 13 and 14.
