Thunberg, a teen climate activist, had shared the “toolkit” to lend her support to the farmers’ agitation against the three farm laws.

While responding to queries relating to toolkit document during a press conference at the Delhi Police headquarters, DCP (Cyber Cell) Anyesh Roy said that it is not a static document.

“It’s a dynamic document which has a large number of hyperlinks, which are links to various Google drives, Google docs and websites. One of the important website present here is This website has lot of Pro-Khalistani content. So this document in itself has an action plan,” Roy said.

The DCP said in first instance, the document was not to be shared in the public and was private, but it was accidentally shared “So this was a document to be shared to a limited number of people, who would then influence public opinion. Having global icons to follow this, this toolkit was made to propagate pro-Khalistan propaganda” he said.
