Jersey Football Magazine is absolutely heartbroken to hear the news of the untimely demise of one of the most beloved and ardent sports journalist in Kolkata, Kushankur Rony Rakshit.


He passed away today morning due to a cardiac arrest while taking a shower. His prolific career in sports journalism included renowned websites like Sportskeeda, a popular TV sports show called Xtra Time and Khel Now. He was also working as a PR agent at TRP sports and at Onsite Soccer.

Atop all of these prolific credentials, he was an ardent East Bengal fan and upheld the team’s vows in their lowest ebb.


Jersey passes its heartfelt condolences to this lost warrior and wishes him a happy afterlife. He will be dearly missed.
