Journalists took to Twitter to pay their tributes to senior journalist Vinod Mehta, who died in Delhi's AIIMS hospital on Sunday morning.

"An iconic editor and friend passes away. Brave and irreverent till the end. Vinod Mehta RIP. In an age of Pygmy editors who won't stand up to be counted, Vinod Mehta was exceptional. The old school of Mumbai editors", tweeted senior journalist Rajdeep Sardesai.

Mehta, 72, was the Outlook Group's editorial chairman and had recently released his second book Editor Unplugged. He had been on a ventilatory support and had a massive cardiac arrest on Thursday.

The journalist fraternity extended condolences to their colleague, mentor, friend and inspiration:
