He passed away at the Shristi Nursing Home in Dibrugarh after a prolonged illness. He is survived by his wife, son, and daughter.

Several prominent regional organizations — such as the All Assam Students’ Union, Tai Ahom Students’ Union, Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chhatra Parishad, All Assam Minority Students’ Union — paid their tribute to Gogoi, who was widely respected in the community.

Over the years, Pradip had become one of the most respected journalists in Upper Assam.

He had held several honorary posts and was also renowned for being an active social worker.

He is known for his journey to meet Northeast rebel leaders, including United Liberation Front of Axom (I) supremo Paresh Baruah.

Fellow journalist Rajeev Bhattacharyya, who journeyed with him into the deep jungles of Myanmar to meet the rebels, remembers him as an “upbeat” personality.
