It was with deep sorrow that I learnt this morning that Nitin Luthra, passed away in the early hours. Nitin, 32, had just taken on position as Director & News Editor at the Indian defence magazine India Strategic, a journal edited and published by his father Gulshan Luthra. Nitin previously spent almost three years as a staff reporter covering aviation and defence for Dow Jones Newswires, and six years before that as an equities correspondent with Reuters. He leaves behind his wife Surabhi and their four-year-old son. RIP.
