Virat Kohli had stood up in defence of Mohammad Shami, who was targeted by trolls after Team India lost the match to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Soon after, Kohli received backlash by Indian extremists and his 9-month-old daughter was also targeted.


Earlier, Alt News had revealed that the person who sent the rape threats was an Indian.

The accused is a Hyderabad techie who worked for a food delivery app earlier, claims the police.

ANI tweeted, “Mumbai Police Cyber Cell arrests a man from Hyderabad for giving online rape threats to the daughter of an Indian cricketer following team’s loss against Pakistan in T20 World Cup. The man, identified as one 23-year-old Ramnagesh Srinivas Akubathini, is being brought to Mumbai: Mumbai Police.”

Last week, the Delhi Commission for Women had sent a notice to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cyber) in connection to the threats. DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal said, “It is learnt that he is being also attacked since he spoke against the incessant trolling of his teammate Md. Shami who was targeted for his religion by online trolls. This is a very serious matter and attracts immediate action.”
