Amid the nationwide lockdown because of the novel coronavirus outbreak, the Police force across the nation has been working day and night to ensure that the general public is following the rules and regulations of the lockdown. Their tireless effort is being lauded by everyone and people are finding ways to pay an ode to the Police force working in the pandemic situation.
Meanwhile, team India skipper Virat Kohli and former Indian pacer Zaheer Khan changed the display pictures of their respective Twitter handles to the Maharashtra Police logo, to pay a tribute to the police force.
Kohli tweeted, “Maharashtra Police has stood by citizens through calamities, attacks & disasters. Today as they lead the war against Corona on the streets, I’ve decided to celebrate them by changing my DP here on Twitter to the Maharashtra Police logo.” He further urged people to do the same and show their support. “Join me in this endeavor”, he added.
Even Zaheer Khan took to his Twitter to thank the efforts of the Maharashtra Police force and tweeted, “#NewProfilePic.” As subtle, the tweet is the greater message it carries with itself.
Alongside Zaheer and Virat, former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar also changed the display picture of his Twitter handle to the logo of Maharashtra Police.
On the side note, Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma have also donated Rs. 5 lakh each for the welfare of the personnel of Mumbai Police.

He tweeted, “Thank you, @imVkohli and @AnushkaSharma for contributing Rs. 5 lacs each towards the welfare of Mumbai Police personnel. Your contribution will safeguard those at the frontline in the fight against coronavirus. #MumbaiPoliceFoundation.”
