Delhi Police registered FIR against unidentified persons following a series of lewd remarks regarding former Indian skipper MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli’s daughters. The complaint was registered after Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal had urged the authorities to take swift action against the online trolls.
The authorities were made aware of the obscene and offensive pictures of Ziva Dhoni and Vamika Kohli, which surfaced last week. DCW chief Swati Maliwal was left fuming after these incidents and urged the police to take just action against the offenders who were tarnishing the reputation of the Indian cricketers by targeting their families.
“Some accounts are posting pictures of the daughters of two senior players of the country, Virat Kohli and (MS) Dhoni, on Twitter and making lewd comments. Disgusting comments about two-year-old and seven-year-old girls. If you don’t like a player, will you abuse his daughter? Issuing notice to police to register FIR,” the tweet by the chief read.
Following her outburst on the micro-blogging site, Delhi police registered FIR against the miscreants. The DCW chief was concerned regarding the safety of the cricketer’s families, especially their children, who were unfairly targeted by trolls on social media handles. She reckoned people should stop watching or following the celebrities they disliked, however, targeting their families is not justified at all.
“Nowadays, it is seen that often trolls openly make lewd remarks about the wife of any celebrity or cricketer, even their two and seven-year-old daughters are not spared. They write wrong things about them on social media and abuse them. This has become a trend these days.
“If someone does not like a cricketer or celebrity, then he should not watch him. However, some people target his family and make lewd comments about his little girl and wife, which is not right at all. Small girls, even a seven-year-old girl is not safe,” the DCW chief was quoted as saying by the press.
