Kohli accused of promoting online gambling

The petition further said that the online gambling companies are using stars like Kohli and Tamannah to brainwash youngsters

A petition has been filed against the captain of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli actress Tamannaah Bhatia in Madras High Court by a Chennai based lawyer. The petition has sought the court to ban online gambling apps stating that youngsters are getting addicted to it. Furthermore, the petition also alleged that Tamannaah Bhatia and Virat Kohli have been promoting these online gambling apps which are a bad influence on youngsters hence both of them should be arrested. 

As per reports, the petitioner wants both the stars to be sent behind the bars for promoting gambling. The petitioner didn’t mince any words in saying that in case any youngster dies by suicide, that person won’t be able to pay the money taken for online gambling. For the time being, it’s been learned that the case has been posted for a hearing on Tuesday, 4 August.

For the last five months, Virat hasn’t played any cricket and must be raring to step on the pitch. Despite not being on the ground, he has managed to stay connected to the fans through his posts on the social media platforms. He has also lent his helping hand for the needy in the COVID-19 pandemic and has been making people aware of the needs to follow the government guidelines.

Moreover, he has featured on some live shows, including ‘Cricket Connected’ on Star Sports and also interacted with Bangladesh veteran Tamim Iqbal. He is next expected to take part in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), scheduled to get underway on 19 September in the UAE.

In the T20 league, he plays for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), but is yet to lead them to title glory. Kohli has been turning out for them since the inaugural edition back in 2008 and is the leading run-scorer in the IPL with five centuries, four of which came in 2016.
