Hyderabad: A now-deleted Twitter handle that posted a gruesome and perverted tweet, threatening to rape Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s 9-month-old daughter is allegedly based in Hyderabad. The threat came after Kohli came out in support of his team Mohammed Shami.
Investigations by multiple media agencies have indicated that, contrary to claims that the threat was from a Pakistani bot account, the handle was not from Pakistan. According to The Quint’s WebQoof fact-checking team, the account was created in April this year, with the username and handle of the account being changed multiple times.
“We found that the user had interacted with several Indian accounts and had conversations on investing in India and also a tweet in which the user had had a conversation in Telugu,” The Quint’s post on Instagram said.
