New Delhi: The Supreme Court today cancelled a criminal complaint lodged against the Indian Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni by an Andhra Pradesh resident subsequent to his portrayal as Lord Vishnu by a business magazine.

Cancelling the criminal complaint, the bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra said that the ingredients of the offence alleged in the criminal complaint amounting to hurting the religious feelings of the complainant are not made out.

Another bench of the apex court had in September last year quashed an identical complainant filed by another complainant before a court in Bengaluru.
