On Saturday morning, Virat Kohli's fans woke up to the hashtag '#ArrestKohli' which has been trending since morning. And this isn't just a regular fan war for the upcoming T20 world cup between India vs Pak. Read on to know more.
Fan war between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli on who is a better batsman!
The incident involves cricket fan S Dharmaraj (RCB supporter), accused of killing 24-year-old P Vignesh (MI supporter), and both hail from Poyyur village in Ariyalur district.
The trend #ArrestKohli refers to an incident from Tamil Nadu where a 21-year-old man was arrested on Thursday. As per reports, he allegedly killed his friend after a drunken brawl over who was a better cricketer – Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli.
Here's what happened on that fateful night
"Both had consumed liquor. As per the initial investigation, Vignesh was supporting Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL) while Dharmaraj was a Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) supporter," officials said.
The report further revealed, "On that day he had made some remarks comparing the RCB team to the speaking difficulty of Dharmaraj. This infuriated Dharmaraj (RCB supporter) who attacked Vignesh (MI supporter) with a bottle and later hit him with a cricket bat on the head. Dharmaraj soon fled the spot."
