on Sunday from Mundra in Gujarat for allegedly issuing threats
against cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni's minor daughter,
police said.

threatening message on the Instagram account after the IPL

    Ranchi police had shared information regarding the boy
with Kutch (West) police and asked them to confirm if he was
the one who had posted the threat message, Singh said.

informed us that the accused hails from Mundra in Kutch

posted the message. He will be handed over to Ranchi police as
the FIR was lodged in that city," the SP said, adding that a
team of Ranchi Police is likely to reach Kutch tomorrow to
take custody of the teenager.
