Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly revealed that he has received "death threat" warning him against attending an inter-college cricket meet at the Vidyasagar University in Midnapore on January 19.
In a letter couriered at his office (situated at his residence), the 44-year-old, who is the President of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), was given a death threat if he travels to Midnapore.
According to xtratime.in, the threat has come from some unknown person named Mr Zulfaqar Ali, who represent All India Anti-Corruption Committee. The letter was addressed to Mrs. Nirupa Ganguly (Sourav’s mother), Mrs. Dona Ganguly and Mr. Snehasish Ganguly.
"Your son is hereby warned not to attend the programme. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again," read the letter.
After getting the threat letter, Ganguly said he had lodged a police complaint about this. "I have intimated the whole matter to the police as well as the organisers of the programme there," he said on Monday.
The CAB president added: ‘’I was supposed to travel to Midnapore for a district sports programme at the Bidyasagar University on January 19. I have been told not to travel there because of security reasons.’’
