A case was filed Friday against a man belonging to Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh for allegedly breaching security cordon at the Uppal Stadium where the second cricket test match between India and West Indies is being played.
Police inspector P Venkateswarlu said a case of trespassing was slapped against 19-year-old Mohammad Khan, who breached security cordon to get up close with Virat Kohli.
It happened an hour into the morning session when he climbed the barricade and sprinted around 70 metres towards Kohli before engaging in a tight hug and then trying to take a selfie with the skipper.
Kohli was seen trying to avoid his hug as the security personnel whisked him away.
Kohli was at mid-wicket in the opening session of the first day of India’s second Test against the West Indies when the young fan ran on the field and embraced the Indian star.
It was the second incident in the series after Kohli was surrounded by fans in the middle of the first Test in Rajkot last week. He was surrounded by two pitch invaders trying to take selfies.
