The Hyderabad man who had allegedly sent rape threats to India ODI and Test captain Virat Kohli’s daughter Vamika has been granted bail on Saturday, November 20, 2021. A software engineer by profession, 23-year-old Ramnagesh Akubathini was arrested by Mumbai Police for sending vicious threats to the 9-month-old daughter of Kohli and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

Apparently, Akubathini under the Twitter username of @Criccrazyygirl issued rape threats to Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s nine-month-old daughter, after India lost to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE and in the aftermath, the Indian captain had spoken against the “spineless” abusers of Mohammed Shami, who was targetted online for his religion after his disappointing performance against Pakistan.

Akubathini, who is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, was arrested on November 10 in Hyderabad and was produced before the Mumbai court in Bandra on November 11. The public prosecutor had told the court that Akubathini had constantly changed his profile name on social media to troll the cricketer before he was tracked down. He was remanded to police custody till November 16.

The software engineer then applied for bail and in his plea said that the charges against him were not punishable with death or even life imprisonment. He also said that further investigation was needed to determine if he had actually posted the rape threat, reported India Today.

In his application, Akubathini also said that it was possible that the Internet Protocol or IP address of the phone recovered from him could be a hacked one and such misuse falls under identity theft.

“That, prima facie Akubathini is arrested on a suspicion that the said tweet has been tweeted by him which is not yet established by the evidence on record. Cybercrimes are carried out with the misuse of IP addresses and the said fact is an established fact. Merely tracing of IP address cannot attribute the said crime to Akubathini,” the application stated.
