The phone of former Indian cricket captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly was stolen from his Kolkata residence, sparking security concerns and highlighting the potential risks of digital information breaches.
The incident occurred on Saturday, with Ganguly filing a complaint at the Thakurpukur police station later that day. He disclosed that his phone, which contained sensitive personal data and was linked to his bank account, was missing from his house after he left it at a designated spot.
The ongoing painting work at his residence has led to the presence of masons, who are now being questioned in connection with the theft. The phone reportedly held access to multiple accounts and saved contact details of important individuals, amplifying concerns about potential misuse.
Ganguly has urged the authorities to recover the phone and prevent any compromise of his personal information. This incident underscores the importance of data security and the need for vigilance, especially for public figures holding sensitive information on their devices.
