Story highlights

Police inspector P Venkateswarlu said a case of trespassing was slapped against 19-year-old Mohammad Khan.

A case was filed on Friday against the fan, who breached security at the Hyderabad cricket ground, to take a selfie with India's skipper Virat Kohli.

The overenthusiastic fan, who even tried to kiss Kohli, belongs to Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh.

Police inspector P Venkateswarlu said a case of trespassing was slapped against 19-year-old Mohammad Khan, who breached security cordon to get up close with Virat Kohli.

It happened an hour into the morning session when he climbed the barricade and sprinted around 70 metres towards Kohli.

The fan gave a tight hug to Kohli and managed to get the selfie. He did not get the kiss — security managed to stop him (and Virat pulled back) before he could plant a kiss on Virat's cheek.

Virat looked very upset while security personnel overpowered the youngster and hauled him off the field.
