Former cricketer and BJP MP from East Delhi constituency Gautam Gambhir claimed that he received death threats from ISIS Kashmir and he has approached Delhi Police. DCP Central Shweta Chouhan said that currently, the investigation is underway and security has been deployed outside his residence.
According to reports, Gautam Gambhir received death threats through email and now the security has been beefed up outside his house.
This has come after the Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s daughter received rape threats after India lost the match against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup series. However, later the man who posted rape threats on social media was arrested and was known to be an ex-IITian from Hyderabad. Recently, he got bail and it was mentioned in the judgement that “it is a matter of investigation that whether or not the tweet was posted by Akubathini, whether or not the account belongs to him and whether or not the thread of the tweets was provocative or not. 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.”
Earlier, Gautam Gambhir was in the news as he showed disappointment with Ravi Shastri’s remarks in which he termed Virat Kohli-led side best in the world.
He also said that now they won’t hear this kind of statement from newly-appointed coach Rahul Dravid.
Gautam Gambhir is a member of the Lok Sabha and is there since 2019. He has also been a former cricketer, who is popular for playing all formats of cricket. He was the only Indian and one of four international cricketers to have scored hundreds in five consecutive Test matches.
