Hyderabad Engineer Arrested For Sending Online Rape Threats To Virat Kohli’s Daughter

November 11, 2021 | by Ritu Sanghvi

Quite recently, we reached a new low when India lost back-to-back matches to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Among the many ways, people expressed their grief and disappointment, one of them was sending rape threats to the Indian Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli’s daughter. Yep, there were online rape threats being sent to Vamika and the police were asked to step in and catch the person behind the threats. And now, the police have made an arrest. The police arrested an engineer from Hyderabad for sending online rape threats to Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s daughter, Vamika.

23-years-old Ramnagesh Srinivas Akubathini, who is an engineer from Hyderabad, was arrested by a special team of Mumbai police on November 8 2021. The reports suggest that he changed his Twitter handle and pretended to be a Pakistani after the police started investigating the screenshots of the rape threats made to Vamika. And he has now been taken to Mumbai.

There was almost like a national outrage (and right so) over the disgusting rape threats that targeted the 9-month-old daughter of Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma. Following which the Mumbai police had been looking into and investigating several Twitter handles when they came across the engineer’s Twitter handle. According to Mumbai police, the man they arrested is a software engineer who is currently unemployed. The police also said that he has reportedly worked for a food delivery app in the past.

According to Hindustan Times, Bollywood actor and Anushka Sharma’s co-star, Farhan Akhtar took to Twitter to express his relief at the arrest of Ramnagesh Srinivas Akubathini, the software engineer. He wrote, “I’m really glad to hear the Mumbai Police cyber cell have located and arrested the creep who tweeted rape threats to a child. Now hoping for similar swift action in cases of female journalists who receive rape threats almost on a daily basis.”

I’m not only glad and happy that the Mumbai police arrested the engineer but I also agree with Farhan Akhtar when he talks about taking swift action in cases of female journalists who also receive a number of rape threats for doing their job. Sending online rape threats and hiding behind the internet, is so not justified and is disgusting, to say the least.
