Activist’s arrest for sedition Condemned

-

BENGALURU Indian politician­s and activists on Monday condemned the arrest of a 22-year-old climate campaigner accused of sedition for helping edit an online document that Sweden’s Greta Thunberg had promoted in support of farmers protesting in the country.

On the weekend, police brought disha ravi, a leader of the Indian arm of Thunberg’s climate crisis-related Fridays for Future movement, to the capital from her home in the southern city of bengaluru to question her. Thunberg had no comment. Police have registered a case of sedition and criminal conspiracy.
