Veteran Indian journalist Vinod Dua passed away in a Delhi Hospital on Saturday. He was 67.

Dua was admitted to an intensive Care Unit of a Delhi-based Apollo Hospital on Monday.

Earlier this year, he was hospitalised after contracting Covid-19 and had been in and out of hospitals ever since. He had also lost his wife to the virus.

Dua, a pioneer in hindi boradcast journalism, had worked in Doordarshan and NDTV.

"Our irreverent, fearless and extraordinary father, Vinod Dua has passed away. He lived an inimitable life, rising from the refugee colonies of Delhi to the peak of journalistic excellence for over 42 years, always, always speaking truth to power. He is now with our mom, his beloved wife Chinna in heaven where they will continue to sing, cook, travel and drive each other up the wall," his daughter Mallika Dua wrote in social media.
