Abstract : Galaxy clusters are the largest virialized structures in the universe and also an ideal laboratory for studying astrophysical plasma processes. They house large-scale diffuse radio emissions in the form of radio halos and radio relics. With the recent advancement in observational techniques in low-frequencies, and the increased sensitivity of telescopes like GMRT, LoFAR, MeerKAT, more peculiar and interesting nonthermal radio features in the ICM are being discovered. The spectral index maps from multi-frequency radio observation and their comparison with X-ray can provide us with significant insight into cluster dynamics, merger history, and the large-scale particle acceleration process. Here we will present some interesting results about a massive merging cluster, A1351. With our radio and X-ray analysis, we will also shed some light on the particle acceleration process going on there.
