For the pair, it was business as usual till the letter came and stirred a hornet's nest," a source close to the development said. <p></p> <p></p>Ganguly shot off a letter, a copy of which was circulated to the media, asking Banerjee not to pay heed to such cases since the complainant did not reveal his or her identity. <p></p> <p></p>"The Cricket Association of Bengal will not entertain any such anonymous communication and as such you being an important part of the organisation should follow the same. I feel you are not entitled to give any reply," Ganguly wrote. <p></p> <p></p>Banerjee hit back within hours using strong language. The four-page rejoinder was also circulated to the media. <p></p> <p></p>Banerjee rejected the former India captain's diktat, saying: "it is widely acknowledged that in the interest of maintaining transparency, organisations world over take cognizance of anonymous information." <p></p> <p></p>To butress his point, he cited in the letter examples of cases where the judiciary has acted on the basis of anonymous information. <p></p> <p></p>"You have been incorrectly advised by persons without any homework being done and based on mere knowledge in the subject matter in issue," Banerjee wrote to Ganguly. <p></p> <p></p>"I humbly request you to kindly point out the said policy of CAB, as referred in your letter, and the date when so adopted," the reply read. <p></p> <p></p>When contacted, the senior advocate gave an impression that the issue had been resolved but did not want to be quoted on any further action.
