Ganguly considering legal action

Kolkata: Unperturbed by the sting operation reports on his Kolkata hotel, former captain Sourav Ganguly said that he will seek legal option to deal with the issue.

A sting operation carried out by a Bengali channel on Friday claimed that former Indian captain's Sourav Ganguly's restaurant in Kolkata was involved in 'high-class prostitution'.

The channel telecasted the visuals of what it claims are showing "dance girls negotiating with customer's" of the restaurant"s disco.

"There is nothing to be worried about this. This is a part and parcel of life, I just have to deal with it. I have taken a legal opinion and spoken to the police commissioner about this Goutam Mohan Chakraborty to investigate," Ganguly said after attending the AGM of the Cricket Association of Bengal.

"I came to know about this very late last night. In due course, you will find out in a few days," he said.

Ganguly though lost his cool when a reporter asked if he felt that it was a conspiracy against him.

"What is your opinion? Why always take my opinion and put the blame on my shoulder always. The investigation will happen and you will find who is right."

Union Minister of Tourism Sultan Ahmed, who is also the president of Mohammedan Sporting Club that Ganguly represented at the AGM, claimed that the sting was cooked up to tarnish Ganguly's image.

"It was a planted story and done intentionally to coincide with his foray into cricket administration. Inquiry will follow and you will come to know about the actual truth," Ahmed said.
