The terrible incident involves cricket fans from Poyyur village in Ariyalur district – the 21-year-old S Dharmaraj, who has been accused of killing 24-year-old P Vignesh.
“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,” said Keelapalur Police.
“During the course of their debate, Vignesh had allegedly mocked RCB and Virat Kohli. Vignesh had the habit of body shaming Dharmaraj, who was a stammerer. On that day he had made some remarks comparing the RCB team to the speaking difficulty of Dharmaraj. This infuriated Dharmaraj who attacked Vignesh with a bottle and later hit him with a cricket bat on the head. Dharmaraj soon fled the spot,” the officials informed.

However, things soon heated up between them over Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Later, Dharamraj lost his temper and attacked Vignesh with a bottle and cricket bat.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are currently in Australia for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022 set to begin in a few days’ time.

This #ArrestKohli trend is utter bullshit man. It wasn't his mistake that one of his fan crossed the limits. He didn't pay his bills after all. Then why is he getting the blame?
