Supreme Court quashes criminal case against M.S. Dhoni


The Supreme Court on Monday quashed a criminal case against India’s limited overs cricket captain M.S. Dhoni for being depicted as Lord Vishnu on the cover of a business magazine.
The bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi quashed the criminal case against Dhoni, holding that the procedure contemplated for initiating such a criminal case was not complied with.

The petitioner had filed the criminal case alleging that depicting Dhoni as Lord Vishnu in commercial context has hurt the sentiments of the people.
