Noted businessman Swapan Sadhan (Tutu) Bose on Monday was named president of Mohun Bagan club, a position which lay vacant after eminent lawyer Gitanath Ganguly’s demise.

“The club lost its president Ganguly in December 2019 and subsequently the executive committee members in today’s meeting unanimously decided to select Swapan Sadhan Bose as the new president of the club,” the Mariners stated in a release.

Consequently, there was a re-shuffle in the Mohun Bagan executive committee as Bose’s son, Srinjoy Bose, now was made the general secretary, while Satyajit Chatterjee, who was treasurer, became the assistant general secretary.

Uttam Saha, previously ground secretary, will now be the treasurer, while Mahesh Tekriwal and Sandipan Banerjee were elected unopposed as ground secretary and hockey secretary respectively.
