Condoling the journalist’s demise, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Pocha would be remembered as a leading voice on TV, print and social media.
“Shocked and saddened to hear about Jehangir Pocha’s demise. My condolences to his family in this hour of grief. May his soul rest in peace,” Modi said on Twitter. “His frank and insightful views on issues will be missed,” the Prime Minister said in another tweet.
The Broadcast Editor’s Association called it a ‘big loss to the world of TV journalism’. Pocha, born in 1968, is survived by his wife and two young twins.
