We report the discovery of a relic Giant Radio Galaxy (GRG) J021659-044920 at redshift $z \sim 1.3$ that exhibits large-scale extended, nearly co-spatial, radio and X-ray emission from radio lobes, but no detection of Active Galactic Nuclei core, jets and hotspots. The total angular extent of the GRG at the observed frame 0.325 GHz, using Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope observations is found to be ${\sim}$ 2.4 arcmin, that corresponds to a total projected linear size of $\sim$ 1.2 Mpc.

J1615+5452: a remnant radio galaxy in the ELAIS-N1 field
We report the discovery of a remnant radio AGN J1615+5452 in the field of ELAIS-N1. GMRT continuum observations at 150, 325 and 610 MHz combined with archival data from the 1.4 GHz NVSS survey were
Discovery of a new, 2.2-Mpc giant radio galaxy at a redshift of 0.57
We report the discovery of one of the largest and most distant Giant Radio Galaxy (GRG) in the Lynx field which was discovered using deep Giant Metre-wave Radio Telescope (GMRT) 150 MHz observations.
Discovery of a new extragalactic circular radio source with ASKAP: ORC J0102–2450
We present the discovery of another Odd Radio Circle (ORC) with the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) at 944 MHz. The observed radio ring, ORC J0102– 2450, has a diameter of ∼70
Radio spectral properties and jet duty cycle in the restarted radio galaxy 3C388
Restarted radio galaxies represent a unique tool to investigate the duty cycle of the jet activity in Active Galactic Nuclei. Due to a sharp discontinuity of the GHz spectral index distribution
On the nature of infrared-faint radio sources in the Subaru X-ray Deep and Very Large Array-VIMOS VLT Deep Survey fields
Infrared-Faint Radio Sources (IFRSs) are an unusual class of objects that are relatively bright at radio wavelengths but have faint or undetected infrared counterparts even in deep surveys. We
Duty cycle of the radio galaxy B2 0258+35
Context. Radio loud active galactic nuclei (AGN) are episodic in nature, cycling through periods of activity and quiescence. The study of this duty cycle has recently gained new relevance because of
Tracking Galaxy Evolution Through Low-Frequency Radio Continuum Observations using SKA and Citizen-Science Research using Multi-Wavelength Data
We present a brief review of progress in the understanding of general spiral and elliptical galaxies, through merger, star formation and AGN activities. With reference to case studies performed with
Search and analysis of giant radio galaxies with associated nuclei (SAGAN)
Radio galaxies with jets of relativistic particles are usually hosted by massive elliptical galaxies with active nuclei powered by accretion of interstellar matter onto a supermassive black hole. In
Revealing the unusual structure of the KAT-7-discovered giant radio galaxy J0133−1302
We present a new study of the 1.7 Mpc KAT-7-discovered Giant Radio Galaxy, J0133−1302, which was carried out using GMRT data at 323 and 608 MHz. This source is located at RA 01h33m13s and Dec.
The best of both worlds: Combining LOFAR and Apertif to derive resolved radio spectral index images
Supermassive black holes at the centres of galaxies can cycle through periods of activity and quiescence. Characterising the duty cycle of active galactic nuclei is crucial for understanding the
