Indian journalist Jyotirmoy Dey was the special investigations editor at a Mumbai tabloid, who had spent 20 years covering the city's underworld and mafia.
He was shot and killed by four men outside a busy market in broad daylight on Saturday. An investigation has been launched into his death but the event has shaken the journalist fraternity to the core.
