The Indian FA sent another letter warning any such incidents in the future to which Mohun Bagan answered that it wasn’t their responsibility to took into these incidents. “In the first letter, we apologized but not as Mohun Bagan. We regretted the incident and spoke for the state of Bengal. We deeply condemn such incidents. “In our latest letter sent to the AIFF about three days back, we have mentioned that the Barasat Stadium is not out ground. It belongs to East Bengal. Mohun Bagan ground is one of the best in the country and we have repeatedly requested the AIFF to let our home games be played there. “The AIFF sent us a warning that this shouldn’t be repeated. It’s not our lookout if the matches are played at Barasat Stadium.
