She gained global publicity after the Delhi Police detained her under sedition and criminal conspiracy for her alleged role in editing a toolkit shared by Thunberg on Twitter and promoting it on social media.Born and raised in Karnataka, Disha Ravi was inclined towards activism quite early in her life. During her interaction with an African news platform, Disha disclosed the reason that propelled her to take up activism. She stated, My motivation to join climate activism came from seeing my grandparents, who are farmers, struggle with the effects of the climate crisis. At the time, I wasnt aware that what they were experiencing was the climate crisis because climate education is non-existent where Im from..Disha adopted a vegan diet as the consumption of meat and dairy produce is propelling global warming.Before going to jail in the toolkit case, Disha used to work as a culinary manager at a Bangalore-based food company, GoodMylk, which is involved in making plant-based food products as an alternative to dairy and non-vegetarian food products.Along with spreading awareness about climate change, Disha also volunteers for several community activities related to the environment like running cleanliness drives, planting trees, etc. Disha Ravi cleaning garbage dump at a locality in Bengaluru.On 3 February 2021, the Swedish Environmental activist Greta Thunberg tweeted a document that was reportedly intended towards gathering support for Indian farmers protest happening against the three farm laws enacted by the Indian government in September 2020. On the other hand, the Delhi Police claimed the toolkit shared by Greta was part of an international conspiracy against India. The police reported that the toolkit was created by pro-Khalistani outfits Sikhs For Justice and Poetic Justice Foundation with the help of some activists in India. Subsequently, an FIR against anonymous people was registered by the Delhi Police under IPC sections 124(A) (for sedition), 153(A) (for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language), and 120(B) (for criminal conspiracy).On 13 February 2021, a team of Delhis Polices Cyber Cell arrested Disha Ravi from her residence in North Bengaluru to interrogate her in the Toolkit case. Later, her name was added to the FIR previously filed in the case. She was also the first person to get arrested in the toolkit case. According to the FIR, the police said that it was found during social media monitoring that an associate of Disha, Nikita Jacob, had attended a zoom call, also attended by some people of a banned pro-Khalistani organisation, Sikhs For Justice. During an interrogation with the police, Disha admitted to having edited two lines in the controversial toolkit; however, she said that the purpose of the toolkit was to garner global support for farmers protest and it was not intended to cause violence of any kind.

Consequently, the Delhi police briefly blocked the website of Fridays For Future India.On 23 February 2021, after spending nine days in jail, she was released on bail by a sessions court of Delhi after the police failed to produce any substantial evidence that could convince the judge to extend Dishas custody. Additional Sessions Judge said the shreds of evidence that the Delhi Police had presented before the court of law were scanty and sketchy and did not prove any of the charges levied against Disha Ravi.
