Former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni, who is currently in the United Arab Emirates, playing for his team Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. While the IPL 2020 is going on in full swing, MS Dhoni-led CSK hasn’t been able to perform well in the series. His wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva are at their farmhouse in Ranchi.
Recently, after CSK suffered another heartbreaking defeat by the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders, the toxic side of the Internet was revealed with a very disturbing trend. MS Dhoni’s 6-year-old daughter Ziva Dhoni received rape threats on social media after the CSK debacle.
The rape threats caused a huge outrage on social media, with several prominent people expressing disgust and demanding action.
Meanwhile, one of the monsters behind those threats was a 16-year-old boy, who was nabbed on Sunday from Mundra in Gujarat for allegedly issuing threats against Ziva.
“The class 12 student was detained for questioning in connection with a disgusting threat message that was posted on the Instagram account of Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni a few days back,” revealed Kutch (West) superintendent of police Saurabh Singh.
The police revealed that the teenager has “confessed” to have posted the threatening message on the Instagram account after the IPL 2020 match between KKR and CSK cricket teams.
SP revealed that the information was shared by the Ranchi Police regarding the boy with Kutch (West) police and asked them to confirm if he was the one who had posted the threat message. The SP revealed:
“We detained him for questioning after Ranchi police informed us that the accused hails from Mundra in Kutch district. We have confirmed that the boy is the same who had posted the message. He will be handed over to Ranchi police as the FIR was lodged in that city,”
A resident of Kutch district in Gujarat arrested by Police for allegedly giving rape threats to the daughter of cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, over social media. The case was registered at Ratu Police Station in Ranchi of Jharkhand.
