Former India national cricket team captain Sourav Ganguly.

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — The former captain of India’s national cricket team said he received a death threat, Sourav Ganguly said he was warned not to attend the upcoming inter-college cricket meet at the Vidyasagar University in West Bengal’s Midnapore district this month.

Authorities in Midnapore said a letter written by a Z. Alam was addressed to Ganguly’s mother, and cautioned her son from attending the event, for which he has been invited as the chief guest.

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

Ganguly confirmed he received the letter in his own announcement, and that he made police and organizers of the match aware. However, according to a report from India Today, West Midnapore district SP Bharati Ghosh said she was unaware of the letter.

The cricket tournament is a joint production between Vidyasagar University and the District Sports Association, and is scheduled to be played on Jan. 19. The president of the Cricket Association of Bengal has not ruled out Ganguly’s attendance at the event yet.

Ganguly himself said he has not yet decided if he will heed to the letter’s warning.

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