According to the cybercrime department of the Mumbai Police, the man was arrested in the southern city of Hyderabad on Wednesday for allegedly posting threats to Twitter. The police added that the charges he faces include sexual harassment, criminal intimidation and defamation.

Kohli has a 10-month-old daughter with his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

The tweet has been deleted and the man’s account has been suspended.

In a statement emailed to CNN on Friday, Twitter stated that it will not tolerate abuse on its platform. The statement said: “Although we encourage people to express their opinions freely on Twitter, our service still does not allow abuse, harassment, and hateful behavior.”

India-one of the favorites of the tournament-failed to qualify for the final stage of the T20 World Cup after defeating New Zealand and rival Pakistan, which has received a lot of insults against the team on social media.

The only Muslim player in the Indian team, Bowler Mohammed Shami (Bowler Mohammed Shami) bears the brunt after Pakistan won 10 wickets on October 24 – this is the first time India has lost to a neighboring country in a World Cup match .

Shami became the target of those who accused him of failure on Instagram and Twitter, some of whom posted Islamophobic messages.

Mohamed Shami celebrated after entering the ticket gate in the T20 World Cup match between India and Scotland.

At a press conference on October 30th, Kohli criticized the “spineless people on social media” who attacked Shami.

“For me, attacking someone’s religious beliefs is the saddest thing humans can do,” Corley said. “We fully support him, we support him 200%… Our brotherhood, our friendship in the team-nothing can be shaken.”

Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar also Tweet Support Shami, calling him a “world-class bowler”.

Cricket writer and former spokesperson for the National Congress of India, Sanjay Jha, said that whenever India loses to Pakistan, this trolling behavior creates a “very strange, disturbing, and narrow personality”.

“(When) Mohammad Shami performed poorly, the message sent through internet trolling was that he was anti-ethnic and traitor,” Jha said.

He added that this abuse is a manifestation of a greater atmosphere of distrust towards Indian Muslims.

Although online abuse is widespread-especially against women and Muslims-arrests of trolls in India are rare. Legal experts and activists point out that the country’s lackluster cybersecurity laws and bureaucracy have slowed down the investigation.
