This week has been a a dangerous one for the former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly, who received a death threat via an unnamed letter. At present, Sourav Ganguly is leading the Cricket Association Of Bengal (CAB) as its President. He got this letter by a post at his place.
As per PTI, the letter contained a warning to the former captain for attending a district felicitation function that is going to take place later this month. “It warned me of grave consequences if I dare to visit the district,” said Ganguly.
This is not the first such incident that happened with him. Ganguly has received death threats in the past as well.

Ganguly was once a major target of a terror organization.
In the year 2008, he admitted receiving two threat letters. The one came from Indian Mujahideen threatening him about abducting his daughter Sana, and Maoists sent another one.
While talking to the media Ganguly yesterday said:
“I have intimated the whole matter to the police as well as the organisers of the programme there.”
To this, a police officer stated,” This time, the letter seems innocuous and might even be a prank. But the special branch has been activated, and they will file a report in this regard even if no complaint is lodged as part of a routine exercise.”
A copy of the letter.
The letter reads, “Your son is hereby warned not to attend the programme. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again.”
