Senior journalist Vinod Dua passed away due to prolonged illness, confirmed his daughter and actor-comic Mallika Dua on Saturday. The cremation of the 67-year-old journalist will take place on Sunday. He was a pioneer in broadcast Hindi journalism with stints in Doordarshan and NDTV. He was recently moved to the Intensive Care Unit of Apollo Hospital on the advice of doctors in Delhi due to an “extremely critical and fragile” condition.

“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,” Mallika wrote on her Instagram Stories.

Vinod Dua, who was hospitalised with Covid-19 earlier this year, lost his wife, radiologist Padmavati ‘Chinna’ Dua, to the virus in June.

Vinod Dua and his wife were in a hospital in Gurgaon when the second Covid wave was at its peak. The journalist’s health had suffered ever since and he had been in and out of hospitals. The couple is also parents to elder daughter Bakul Dua, a clinical psychologist.
