A potential rapist, a hate-monger and an IIT graduate Ramnagesh Srinivas Akubathini has been arrested for giving rape threats to the infant daughter of the Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli.— Zoya Rasul (@zoyarasul) November 10, 2021
He did it because Kohli spoke against islamophobic trolling of Mohammed Shami.
So Ramnagesh Akulabathini is an IIT graduate from Hyderabad..his tweets showed his appreciation for bandi sanjay and lakshmi manchu— Srdtweets (@DexterousRd) November 10, 2021
He got arrested for making disgusting comments on Kohli' s daughter..Feel sorry for his parents for what they are going through ..
So the only time men are arrested for threatening/abusing/harassing online is when they target Dhoni’s or Kohli’s infant daughters. Not that they shouldn’t be – but do the rest of the times not count? Also hope nobody is nursing the galatfehmi they’ll learn from this arrest?— Just A Citizen (@ks_NotANiceGirl) November 10, 2021

Degree as they say is just a piece of paper. Real education should reflect in a person's behaviour. Shoot the bastard for this thought alone!
