Virat Kohli Fan Kills Rohit Sharma Fan In TN, Twitter Trends #ArrestKohli

A man in Tamil Nadu killed his friend after a drunken quarrel over who was a better cricketer – Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli.

Quarrell over Virat and Rohit

The two Indian giants Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the best current cricketers and they both led the team as well. It is not surprising that they have massive fandom and there are times when the fans of these cricketers argue on and off social media about who is better between the two. Such comparisons have always been made.


Back in the day, the same debate used to happen between Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, and Brian Lara, and in the Indian team between Sachin and current head coach Rahul Dravid. However, never did you hear about a fan killing the other over such debates. That is exactly what happened in Tamil Nadu where two fans, one of Virat and the other of Rohit debated and it led to bloodshed.

Friend murders friend 

The incident happened in Mallur, where two friends named P Vignesh and Dharmaraj were discussing cricket over drinks near SIDCO Industrial Estate on Tuesday night. The debate got heated and Dharmaraj, the Kohli and RCB fan among the two got angry and attacked Vignesh, a Rohit fan, with a bottle and cricket bat which led to the death of Vignesh. Dharmaraj then fled from the spot of death.

The police said that Vignesh, during the heated conversation, had begun to mock Dharmaraj, even body shaming him for having a speech defect, and compared that with Kohli and RCB’s performances. “During the course of their debate, Vignesh had allegedly mocked RCB and Virat Kohli. Vignesh had the habit of body shaming Dharmaraj, who was a stammerer. On that day he had made some comments comparing the RCB team to the speaking difficulty of Dharmaraj. This outraged Dharmaraj who attacked Vignesh with a bottle and later hit him with a cricket bat on the head. Dharmaraj soon fled the spot,” said the police.


According to Zee News, Vignesh’s body was spotted only in the morning by the workers who were on their way to work at the SIDCO factory. The police had now sent Vignesh’s body to the government hospital in Ariyalur for autopsy and a case has been registered.
