Ranchi, Oct 24 (UNI) Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today arrived at his home town here, the first visit after winning Twenty-20 World Cup held in South Africa amid tight security.

Dhoni immediately got into his private car and was whisked away to his residence at Mecon colony.
He would be felicitated by Chief Minister Madhu Koda tomorrow.
The team Indian captain is scheduled to leave day after for the conditioning camp.
