New Delhi [India], Sept. 5 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday quashed the criminal proceedings against India's limited over skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for allegedly portraying himself as Lord Vishnu on a magazine cover page.

A non-bailable warrant was issued against Dhoni earlier on January 9 this year by a court in Anantapur in this regard.

Social activist Jayakumar Hiremath had filed a case against him.

The case was registered against Dhoni under Section 295 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). (ANI)
