BJP president Nitin Gadkari on Sunday condemned the killing of the city-based journalist saying the incident shows deterioration of the law and order in Maharashtra.

"The gruesome murder of the senior journalist is a very shocking incident. Mumbai has lost a brave journalist. I condole his death and condemn the dastardly crime. This incident has shown deterioration of the law and order in Maharashtra," Gadkari said in a statement issued by the Maharashtra BJP.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Congress president, Kripashankar Singh, described the incident as an "attack on democracy" and demanded that the state home department bring the culprits to book at the earliest.

Jyoti Dey (56), an editor (special investigation), MiD Day, was on Saturday shot dead by unidentified assailants at the suburban Powai.
