Delhi Police Registers FIR Against Trollers Against MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli’s Daughters
The Delhi Police (DP) registered an FIR against some unknown persons following a series of ill-advised comments about the daughters of former Indian captains, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli as well. The complaint was filed after Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal asked officials to act against online trolls as well.
The officials were made aware of objectionable photographs of Ziva Dhoni and Vamika Kohli, which had surfaced on the internet last week. DCW chairperson Swati Maliwal was furious after these incidents and urged the police to act at the earliest against the culprits, who were tarnishing the reputation of Indian cricketers by also targeting their families.

He said, ‘Nowadays it is seen that trolls often openly make lewd comments about any celebrity or cricketer’s wife, even their two and seven year old daughters are not spared. They write wrong things about him on social media and abuse him. It has become a trend these days. If someone doesn’t like a cricketer or celebrity then he/she should not watch it. However, some people target his family and make lewd comments about his little girl and wife, which is not true at all. Small girls, even a seven-year-old girl, are not safe.
