Bengaluru: Climate activist Disha Ravi alleged that her passport has been denied despite following due process.
Disha who works for Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg’s organisation ‘Fridays For Future’, claimed that she was supposed to be in Glasgow along with three other members to attend the prestigious United Nations climate conference.
On Saturday, she tweeted, “I could not attend the COP26 event and was subject to unnecessary court proceedings. My passport was still withheld. This is a blatant violation of my civil liberties”.
