Man arrested for over rape threats to Kohli's baby daughter

A man has been arrested for allegedly issuing online rape threats to the baby daughter of Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli after the team's dismal performance in the T20 World Cup.

He was arrested from the southern city of Hyderabad on Wednesday.

The Indian team has faced a deluge of online abuse after losing back-to-back matches in the ongoing tournament.

The trolling appears to have begun after India's loss to arch-rival Pakistan.

It was the first time India lost a match to Pakistan in a World Cup.

After entering as clear favourites to lift the trophy, the Indian team crashed out of the tournament, sparking shock and anger among fans back home.
