Indian activist breaks silence on sedition arrest

27

An Indian climate activist linked to Greta Thunberg said she felt “violated” by her arrest last month on sedition charges and her treatment by the media, her first comments on a case that sparked international criticism.

Disha Ravi, a 22-year-old vegan, and member of Thunberg’s Fridays for Future movement was charged in February over an online document about months-long protests by Indian farmers.

Ten days after her arrest and following widespread criticism, a court in New Delhi granted her bail, citing “scanty and sketchy evidence” that she was involved in fomenting violence.—Agencies
