Virat Kohli lands himself in trouble for endorsing online gaming platform

iCrowd Newswire - Aug 1, 2020

XtraTime Web Desk: India captain Virat Kohli seems to have landed himself into a trouble for endorsing an online gaming platform. A Chennai based advocate AP Suryaprakasam has filed a plea in Madras High Court seeking a ban on online gambling, and arrest & prosecution of all running such sites, and famous personalities endorsing them, according to reports.

In his plea, advocate Suryaprakasam said that gambling is a criminal offense in India and there has been a recent spurt in suicides among youth in Tamil Nadu due to gambling.

“Youngsters are being hooked to this online gambling addiction by the organizers by providing huge cash bonuses to anyone.”

“It uses the famous cricket and film personalities including cricketer like Virat Kohli and actress Tamannah who brainwash these young with their powerful appeal to join this game,” quoted DNA from the petition filed.
The matter is likely to be taken up for hearing on Tuesday or Wednesday.
