Indian Cricket captain Virat Kohli has been fined ₹500 for using drinking water to wash his cars, on Friday (June 7). The skipper who is currently in England for the World Cup has about a dozen cars in his Gurugram house at DLP phase-I.
According to reports, his domestic help used drinking water to wash the cars on daily basis. The neighbours raised an alarm to the corporation officials that thousand litres of drinking water was wasted by Virat’s domestic helps every day, when there is an ongoing water crisis.
Based on the information, Gurugram Municipal Corporation slapped ₹500 fine on the Indian cricket captain.
Gurugram and other parts of north India are suffering from the sweltering heatwave with mercury levels touching 40 degrees. The city is facing a severe drinking water shortage due to this.
