The fiery 26-year-old abused a journalist over a story relating to his personal life after a net session in Perth.
Kohli was then told he had attacked the wrong journalist and relayed his apology through another reporter.
The BCCI released a statement on Friday saying team management had warned Kohli against any similar incident in the future.
“The player in question has been told to maintain the dignity of the Indian team at all times, and avoid any such behaviour in the future,” BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said in statement.
“The BCCI would like to request the concerned parties to move on, and focus on the Indian cricket team’s campaign.”
Kohli has been in fine form for India, notching up a century in the win over rivals Pakistan in a pressure-cooker atmosphere in Adelaide last month.
India currently sit atop of Pool B and will face the West Indies on Friday at 6.30am (GMT).
