Former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly has reported the theft of a valuable smartphone from his residence in Behala Chowrasta, Kolkata. The complaint was filed on February 11 at the Thakurpukur police station. The smartphone, estimated to be worth Rs 1.6 lakh, was last traced at around 11:30 am on a Saturday. Workers present at the house during that time, engaged in painting, are potential subjects for questioning.
Expressing concern, Sourav Ganguly mentioned that the stolen phone has access to several accounts, potentially putting his financial transaction-related information at risk. The police are considering questioning the workers who were present during the last known location of the phone.
In his complaint, Sourav Ganguly wrote, “I believe my phone was stolen from home. I saw the phone for the last time around 11:30 am on January 19th. Then I tried to find the phone but couldn’t find it. Deeply concerned about losing my phone. Because that phone has multiple contact numbers and access to personal information and accounts. I am requesting to trace the phone or take appropriate action.”

Sourav Ganguly mentioned that there is no particular reason for this and that hosting the U-19 World Cup in countries where the senior World Cups are less frequent is a way to expand the game globally. Ganguly dismissed the idea that the decision is financial, stating that most non-profit World Cups not featuring senior men’s teams are held for the development of the sport.
