Former India captain yesterday provided shocking information that his life is in danger. Threats were issued against him through a letter from an anonymous person warning him not to attend an inter-college cricket meeting at the Vidyasagar University in West Bengal’s Midnapore district. The said meeting is scheduled to take place on January 19 where he is invited as a guest, reported Indian Express.
While speaking to news agency, Ganguly admitted to have received the threat letter and that he had notified the police regarding the same.
But while speaking to journalists today, Sourav Ganguly brushed off the threats as being mere rhetoric words. He said that this is not the fast time such death threats had been issued against his life. He added that he would not take them serious.
He confirmed that he would attend the meeting, not caring about what the letters says.
The president of The Cricket Association of Bengal somehow strengthened the possibility of Sourav atteneding the meeting when he failed to completely rule him out.
He said that no decision has been made as at the moment and considering it will be a live show performance “you all will come to know if I go there.”
According to information provided by the local sources in Midnapore, one one Z Alam addressed the letter to the captain’s mother. He warned her that the cricket stalwart should not even think of attending the programme lest he be assassinated.
This is how the letter read:
“Your son is hereby warned not to attend the programme. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again.”
But West Midnapore district SP Bharati Ghosh reported that she is yet to get details of the development, as reported by India Times.
“We have not been informed about this,” she said. The motive behind the letter however is unknown.”
