Mumbai: Senior journalist Vinod Dua has passed away at the age of 67 on Saturday, after a prolonged illness following a Covid-19 infection.

He had survived Covid earlier this year, but his wife Padmavati ‘Chinna’ Dua lost the battle to the virus.

The cremation will take place on Sunday, 5 December at Lodhi Crematorium in New Delhi.

Dua is survived by two daughters, the comic-actor Mallika Dua and Bakul Dua, a clinical psychologist. The news was confirmed by Mallika on Instagram. “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. The cremation will take place tomorrow (5.12.21) at Lodhi crematorium at 12 noon,” she wrote.

A name in the world of Hindi broadcast journalism, Dua was awarded the Padma Shri in 2008. He used to host "Zaika India Ka" on NDTV India where he travelled and brought stories from across cities. His show "Jan Gan Mann Ki Baat" for The Wire Hindi took a critical stance at the government.

In his long career, Dua had worked with Doordarshan, NDTV India, The Wire Hindi, Sahara TV, Zee TV as well as SET India.
