A petition was filed in Madras High Court by Lawyer A.P Suryaprakasam, seeking to put a ban on online gambling. The petitioner mentioned two names cricketer Virat Kohli and actress Tamannaah and said that promoting such games should also be punishable. He said that it amounts to abetment to gambling.
