A 16-year-old boy was detained from Kutch district in Gujarat for allegedly issuing threats against cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s minor daughter. The threat had caused huge outrage on social media, with several cricketers, politicians, and celebrities expressing disgust and demanding action.
“The Class 12 student from Namna Kapaya village was detained for questioning in connection with a disgusting threat message that was posted on the Instagram account of Mr. Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni a few days back,” a senior police officer told reporters.
Reportedly, the Ranchi Police had shared information regarding the boy with the police in Kutch and asked them to confirm if he was the one who had posted the threat message. The teenager “confessed” to have posted the threatening message on the Instagram account after the IPL 2020 match between KKR and CSK cricket teams, the police said.
