Sourav GangulyFormer India captain Sourav Ganguly on Monday revealed that he has received 'death threat' warning him against attending an inter-college cricket meet in Midnapore on January 19.

Local sources in Midnapore told PTI that one Z Alam wrote the letter addressing to Ganguly's mother Nirupa warning the cricket stalwart against attending the programme where he has been invited as the chief guest.

"Your son is hereby warned not to attend the programme. If he dares to come here, you will not see him again," is what has been written in the letter.

Confirming this, Ganguly said: "Yes I have received the letter on January 7 and I have informed this to the police and the organisers."

Ganguly has been invited as chief guest in the final of the Inter-Collge Cricket Tournament jointly organised Vidyasagar University and the District Sports Association on January 19.

The Cricket Association of Bengal president, however, did not rule out attending the programme.

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