Delhi Police have registered a case against Bombay High Court lawyer Nikita Jacob for taking part in anti-india campaigns. Legal Rights Observatory filed a complaint against Nikita and sought FIR under charges of sedition. LRO said in a Tweet that it has lodged a complaint with Delhi Police against Nikita for arranging campaigns by foreign celebrities to run a campaign against farm laws duly passed by Indian Parliament. If also stressed that it wants a sedition case against her.
Nikita’s involvement in anti-India campaign came to the fore as Greta Thunberg accidentally tweeted about a “Toolkit” that interested people could use for supporting her cause. Greta had tweeted in support of farmers protests after pop star Rihanna and porn star Mia Khalifa.
The toolkit was not just a resource file but a document giving details regarding the activities of anti-India forces. This was noticed by Greta after social media users started discussing it. She deleted the document and all linked documents to it were either made private, moved or thrashed. By that time, however, a lot of content had been downloaded and shared by social media users.
It was on checking the documents that it was found that Nikita had been allegedly editing these documents much before they became viral on social media. The edit history of Google documents shows that these were used to organise anti-India movement on social media.
Nikita deleted her Twitter account after she got exposed on the social media because of Greta’s folly in unveiling a document that had explosive details. As per her deleted Twitter profile, she is a Bombay High Court lawyer, environmentalist and associated with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). She was owner of the document named “Solidarity with Indian Farmers” created on January 30, 2020, according to one Twitter user named Vijay Patel. She was also running a propaganda account on Instagram by the name News Infuse.
