Recently, former Indian skipper and Cricket Association of Bengal's (CAB) president, Sourav Ganguly had received a death threat through an anonymous letter and now he had launched an official police complaint against it according to Kolkata Police.
A senior police officer told PTI, “We are looking into the matter. We are checking whether it’s a genuine or fake letter. Our officers are examining the letter.” Anonymously, on January 7, Ganguly received a death threat letter at his home in Behala. The letter was suggesting him not to attend a felicitation function at Midnapore.
As per the schedule of Ganguly, he is going to visit Midnapore on 19th January for an inter-college cricket meet at the Vidyasagar University. The letter basically read, “Your son is hereby warned not to attend the program. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again."
Confirming this, Ganguly said: “Yes I’ve received the letter on January 7 and I’ve informed this to the police and the organizers. Ganguly though hasn’t decided yet whether he will be attending the function or not. “Let us see, nothing has been decided yet. You all will come to know if I go there,”
the SP of West Midnapore district, Bharati Ghosh said she wasn't aware of such an incident. She said, “We have not been informed about this."
