Jasvinder Sidhu said Kohli pointed at him and abused him in Hindi during a nets session in Perth on Tuesday.
According to the report, Kohli reappeared out of the dressing room after training to smile and wave at Sindhu.
The star batsman had planned to target another reporter from a rival newspaper in regards to a story about his personal life.
Upon realising his mistake, Kohli reportedly sent another journalist over to apologise on his behalf.
Hindustan Times sports editor Sukhwant Basra said Sindhu hade made a complaint to the ICC over the incident.
“I have written a letter to the BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya after consulting our Editor-in-Chief. I have asked Dalmiya to look into the incident. The reporter in question, Jasvinder Sidhu, has also informed the ICC about the incident,” Basra is quoted as saying by NDTV Sports.
Kohli has been in superb form at the Cricket World Cup, notching up a century in a pressure-cooker atmosphere against rivals Pakistan in Adelaide.
India are unbeaten at the Cricket World Cup having won all three of its Pool B clashes.
