Wriddhiman Saha declined to reveal journalist’s name who threatened him: Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha has decided to not reveal the identity of the journalist who was exposed by him a couple of days ago for his disrespectful chats and threatening messages.
The Indian cricketer, took to Twitter, on Saturday and exposed a journalist who sent a string of WhatsApp messages to him and tried to harass him.
Saha, on the grounds of humanity, has decided not to bring out the name of the journalist who did the condemnable act.
With a series of tweets, the wicketkeeper-batsman said that he won’t be revealing the name of the journalist for the time being, but will not hold back if any such cases arise again.
“I was hurt and offended. I thought not to tolerate such kind of behaviour and didn’t want anyone to go through these kind of bullying. I decided I will go out and expose the chat in public eye, but not his/her name,” wrote Wriddhiman Saha in a twitter thread.
“My nature isnt such that I will harm anyone to the extent of ending someone’s career. So on grounds of humanity looking at his/her family, I am not exposing the name for the time being. But if any such repetition happens, I will not hold back,” he added.
He further thanked everyone who came to support him.
“I thank each and everyone who has shown support and extended their willingness to help. My gratitude.”
A lot of former Indian cricketers went outside and supported Wriddhiman Saha and asked the BCCI to take strong action against such acts.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) soon decided to take on such journalists and asked for a detailed report. The cricket board further said that the matter won’t be laid down to rest until all the involved are not examined. BCCI was further also interested to know, if any other cricketer was harassed by journalists, in the past.
Wriddhiman Saha was dropped from India’s Test squad against Sri Lanka and the cricketer is highly unlikely to be considered for the role as the management wants to groom youngsters for the future.
