On Saturday, Sourav went for unveiling his statue at Balurghat in West Bengal. According to a report in CricTracker, Ganguly, who was traveling with Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) joint secretary Abhishek Dalmiya, found his AC 1st class seat already occupied by another passenger.
Ganguly said that when he arrived in his compartment, another passenger was already occupied the seat. When Dada tried to resolve the matter, the passenger began a brawl which invited RPF personnel to rush to the spot.

With no option left, Ganguly was forced to change the berth. He was later offered a berth in AC 2-tier.
“I travelled in train once after 2001. It’s been almost after 15 years,” Ganguly said.
Despite the unpleasant experience, Ganguly unveiled his eight-feet tall bronze statue. He captioned the image as “Looks like me…”
