In the backdrop of Delhi Police's investigation into the activist Greta Thunberg ‘toolkit’ case, an image surfaced on social media platforms showing Thunberg eating on a train as impoverished kids look through the window from the outside.
A Twitter user shared the image along with a poster with the caption saying, "India ask these anti forces #AskGretaWhy."
This post retweeted over 750 times.
Several other Twitter users are sharing the same image with the hashtag 'AskGretaWhy'.
In our investigation, we found that the viral image is morphed.

The report stated how residents of the village of Korosigna in the northern Central African Republic, were displaced to makeshift camps in the forest after the ‘bush war'.
In conclusion, an edited image showing Thunberg eating on a train as impoverished kids look through the window from the outside is being widely shared on social media in the backdrop of the Farmers' protest toolkit case.
