Kolkata: The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) on Friday decided to send a notice to former Team India skipper Sourav Ganguly after larvae of dengue mosquitoes were found breeding at his house, an official said.

Ganguly's elder brother Snehasish, a former Ranji Trophy player, has been diagnosed with dengue and was undergoing treatment at a city hospital.

"We have found larvae of dengue mosquitoes at Ganguly's residence in Behala during our inspection on November 19 and had asked them to keep the place clean," KMC Member, Mayor- In-Council (Health), Atin Ghosh said.

But even on Friday’s inspection, the KMC officials found larvae of dengue mosquitoes in that large compound.

"So, as per rules, we will be sending a notice to them (Gangulys)," Ghosh said.

Meanwhile, Cricket Association of Bengal president's brother Snehasish Ganguly has been admitted with dengue to a city hospital on November 23 and is under conservatory treatment for the disease, a senior official of the hospital confirmed.

"He was admitted to our hospital on November 23 (yesterday) evening and his tests for dengue showed positive results," he said.

"However, his condition is better today," the official added.

According to the state health department, there have been 35 dengue deaths in West Bengal since January though the unofficial figure stands at 50.
