Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has revealed that he received a death threat, which warned him not to attend the inter-college cricket competition at Vidyasagar University in Midnapore on January 19.

According to local sources, an individual named Z Alam wrote the letter, which was addressed to Ganguly’s mother Nirupa.

“Your son is hereby warned not to attend the programme. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again,” the letter said.

Ganguly confirmed that he had received the letter, saying: “Yes I’ve received the letter on January 7 and I’ve informed this to the police and the organisers.”

The 44-year-old was invited to the event as a guest, but it now remains unclear whether he will attend.

“Let us see, nothing has been decided yet. You all will come to know if I go there,” he said.

West Midnapore district SP Bharati Ghosh admitted that she did not know about the death threat to the ex-India skipper.

“We have not been informed about this,” she said.
