Senior journalist and environmental activist Darryl D’Monte, who worked with leading English dailies, died at a hospital in Mumbai after a brief illness, a family friend said on Sunday.
He was 74.
D’Monte was admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in suburban Bandra sometime back where he breathed his last on Saturday evening, his friend said.
In a career spanning several decades, he served as the resident editor of Mumbai editions of The Times of India and The Indian Express, he said.
Besides a career in journalism, he had a keen interest in environmental issues and took some initiatives for the cause, he added.
