Sports journalist Lenin no more

Prominent sports journalist Lenin Gani, who was working as the head of sport department at the English version of bdnews24.com, breathed his last in London on Thursday. He was suffering from respiratory complicacies. He was 46.

Lenin’s family members said that the veteran journalist was suffering from Pulmonary Hyper Tension and lung problems for a long time and was undergoing treatment in London where his family has resided for two generations.

His condition deteriorated on Thursday afternoon and he was immediately taken to a hospital in North Hyde Park only to be declared dead by the on duty doctors.

Lenin left behind his parents, three brothers, including his twin, his wife and only daughter Aafreen Alzena Gani apart from hosts of friends and well wishers.

A pall of gloom descended on the Bangladesh sports arena at the death of Lenin who was dear not only to the country’s sports journalists but also to many football lovers for his vast knowledge of the game.

He will be buried in London today after his wife Sinthia Parvez, who was in Dhaka during the untimely death of her husband, reaches the UK.

Lenin started his journalism career with an English national daily Morning Sun in 1990 before joining The Daily Star in 1992 as a sub-editor. He then moved to New Age as sports editor in 2006 but was forced to leave in August 2008 due to his poor health. He later joined Daily Sun as a sports editor after facilitating his treatment in London and was finally involved with online news agency bdnews24.com as a contributing editor.

Lenin was awarded by the Dhaka Reporters Unity for the best sports reporter in 2001.

Bangladesh Sports Journalists Association, Bangladesh Sports Press Association, Bangladesh Sports Journalists Community, Bangladesh Football Federation and many more sports organisations condoled his death.
