Virat is on target of trolls after defeat against Pakistan
After Pakistan’s defeat in the T20 Cricket World Cup on October 24, some users on social media trolled Virat and threatened to rape his daughter.
These attacks on him increased after taking the side of fast bowler Mohammed Shami. After the defeat against Pakistan, Shami was targeted for his religion and Virat defended him and scolded the trolls.
Maliwal’s question – Why this cheapness on defeat?
Reacting strongly to the attacks on Virat’s daughter, Maliwal tweeted, “The manner in which the 9-month-old daughter of Virat Kohli was threatened with rape on Twitter, it is extremely shameful. This team has made us feel proud thousands of times, why this cheapness on defeat? I have issued a notice to Delhi Police, arrest all those who threatened the 9-month-old girl with rape!’
This information was sought from Delhi Police
In his notice, Maliwal has sought details of the FIR registered in the case from the Delhi Police and the identified and arrested accused.
If no accused has been arrested, the commission has asked the police to inform about the steps taken for their arrest. Apart from this, a detailed report of the action taken in the matter has also been sought.
This notice has been sent to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cyber Crime), Delhi Police.
