'Perfectly healthy': CAB Secy Snehasish Ganguly refutes reports of him contracting COVID-19

Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], June 20 (ANI): Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) secretary Snehasish Ganguly on Saturday clarified that he is "perfectly healthy" and attending his office daily after various media reports claimed that he tested positive for coronavirus.
