Mumbai: A square, close to which noted journalist Jyotirmoy Dey was slain, in the capital of Maharashtra will be named after him.

- Mayor Snehal Ambekar will unveil the J Dey Chowk’s plaque.
- The square is located right across the road where Dey was gunned down.
- The unveiling ceremony of the square will be followed by a memorial meeting.
- Dey, who was known to be a brave journalist, often put his pen on the paper against the Underworld.
- The 56-year-old scribe worked with many leading publications.
