The IBSF regrets to inform that a well-known referee from India, Ajay Rastogi, has passed away today afternoon. Ajay had been exposed to Covid-19 two days ago and was put on a ventilator in the morning. Later in the afternoon, he failed to breathe properly and took his last breath.


Ajay Rastogi was Class-I accredited referee and officiated in many IBSF tournaments for over 3 decades. He was well versed with all the rules of our sport and his demise is a huge loss for our billiards and snooker fraternity.
