Rajiv's death in 1991 plunged the newspaper into gloom.
On January 18, 1999, the employees of The Associated Journals went to court demanding payment of arrears.
Clearly, the company's finances were in bad shape.
Its 2004-05 accounts, the earliest available in online filings, say the company closed the year with a loss of Rs 78.7 lakh, which took its accumulated losses to around Rs 27 crore.
That Vora, the Congress treasurer, had been running the company since 2002 doesn't seem to have helped.

This could have been caused by a settlement with some employees.
By 2008, the paper had to shut down, perhaps because it was unable to sustain the loss-making operations.
