The notice stated that it has been reported that online threats are being given to rape the nine-month-old girl child of Virat Kohli since the team's defeat in India versus Pakistan match in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

"This is very serious matter and attracts immediate action," she said.

In view of this, the women's commission has asked the Delhi Police to submit the copy of the FIR registered in the matter and sought details of the accused identified and arrested in the matter.

The commission has also asked for information about the details of steps taken by the Delhi Police to arrest the accused.

The DCW chief has also sought a detailed action taken report in the matter.

"Considering the gravity of the matter, please provide the sought information to the Commission latest by November 6," Maliwal added.
