HYDERABAD: The man who had allegedly threatened the infant daughter of India's star cricketer and captain Virat Kohli's daughter, has finally been tracked and caught. 

The man--Ramnagesh Akubathini, holds a degree from the elite Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Hyderabad. 

Akubathini, a software engineer, was booked after the message went viral and people expressed shock over the audacity and disgusted with the message. 

After a proper complaint was made, the police begun an investigation. It was found that the person hailed from Hyderabad. Akubathini was traced and a team of police from Maharashtra reached his home. He was caught and has now been finally arrested.

In fact, he has a history of trolling despite his academic achievements. He was a topper in high school. And, he had been working with a prominent food delivery app in Bengaluru till recently. Of late, he was preparing to go to US for a master's degree.  

He had even pretended to be a Pakistani user. But the handle was traced. After India's loss in T20 World Cup in Dubai, Kohli was criticised when he objected to trolling of his colleague, Mohammed Shami over religion. Kohli even said that attacking someone over religion was the most pathetic thing one can do to a human. 

The threat given to a baby, had sent shockwaves across the country. Though he had deleted the account, he was caught. His family claim that he might have posted it 'accidentally' and may have 'mistyped after removing the lenses', say media reports quoting his father.
