PTI's New York correspondent passes away



Shourie, 72, was Editor of PTI before being posted to the United Nations as its correspondent in 1989.


Family members said Shourie was ill for the past two months and was in a hospital for over a fortnight. He died due to multiple complications that developed in the last few days, they said.


Born in Lahore on March 1, 1937, Shourie had his initial education in Shimla and Ambala after his family moved to India after partition.

Shourie joined PTI in 1960 as a sub-editor and later served in various capacities before becoming Chief News Editor in 1986. He was appointed Editor in 1987.
