Sourav Ganguly gets death threat via anonymous letter
Former Indian Cricketer and Bengal Cricket Association president Sourav Ganguly on Monday said her received a anonymous threat letter asking him to keep away from a university programme in Medinipur in West Bengal. Ganguly got the letter on January 5th and was scheduled to make a visit in the area on January 19.
The two-page letter addressing to Ganguly’s mother Nirupa, with a title demanding a probe by the CBI and the CID, was written in Bengali by one Zed Alam from Midnapore.
“Your son is hereby warned not to attend the programme. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again. I have sent photographs with it. Do not send him here because Ashish Chakraborty took money from many people on the pretext of giving jobs. Even CAB will not be able to do anything. I sent you this letter because he would return home as dead if he would come.” Alam wrote in letter.
Confirming this, Ganguly said: “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. I have intimated the whole incident to the police authorities. They are taking all the adequate steps.”
