The cremation of the senior journalist will take place tomorrow at Lodhi crematorium in the National Capital, informed Mallika.
Taking to Instagram, Mallika wrote: “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.”
Dua was admitted to the intensive care unit at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital here on Monday after his condition deteriorated due to post-covid issues.
Earlier this year, Vinod Dua was hospitalised after contracting the Covid-19. He had lost his wife, radiologist Padmavati 'Chinna' Dua, after a long battle with the virus in June.
Dua was a pioneer in broadcast Hindi journalism with stints in Doordarshan and NDTV.
