A senior investigative journalist, who extensively covered underworld and crime for over two decades, was shot dead in broad daylight on Saturday by four motorbike-borne persons who pumped at least four bullets into him from behind at close range in suburban Powai.
Jyotirmoy Dey (56), Editor (Special Investigation) with an English tabloid 'Mid-Day', was riding his motorcycle when he was gunned down in a daring attack that shocked the media fraternity.
Dey was shot dead by unidentified persons in Powai at 15.30 hours, Joint Police Commissioner (Law & Order) Rajnish Seth said.
