Renowned journalist and writer Padma Shri Kanhaiya Lal Nandan passed away here today.

He was 77 and survived by his widow and two daughters. Nandan was admitted to a private hospital last Wednesday following low blood pressure and aberrations in breathing.

He breathed his last this morning. He was on dialysis for some time.

Nandan, who was honoured with the Bhartendu Award, had been the editor of Parag, Sarika and Dinman. He had also worked as the feature editor with Hindi daily Navbharat Times.
