"I express deep grief over the death of Elahi who died at Konnagar in Hooghly district this afternoon, and convey my condolences to his relatives, colleagues and other well-wishers," Banerjee said in a statement.

Recalling the career of Elahi, the CM said he had worked efficiently in channels like CTVN and Calcutta News (CN), and had been in the profession for a long time. "The fraternity of journalists lost a dear friend with his demise."

Elahi, who was also associated with the 'Calcutta Observer' newspaper, died at a nursing home in Konnagar after having recently suffered a cardiac arrest, his family said.
