A petition has been filed in the Madras High Court against Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian cricket team. Virat has been accused of promoting online gambling i.e. online gambling and has also demanded arrest. Apart from Virat Kohli, a case has been registered against actress Tamannaah Bhatia, making the same allegations.
In a petition filed by a Chennai lawyer, the petitioner has sought directions from MHC to ban online gambling, stating that the youth are getting addicted to it. The petition further states that online gambling companies are using stars like Virat Kohli and Tamannaah to brainwash the youth and hence, both should be arrested for this. He also referred to the case of a young man who had committed suicide because he could not return the money taken for online gambling.
