New Delhi: Senior advocate Vivek Tankha on Sunday called for an independent investigation under the Supreme Court`s supervison after the death of journalist Akshay Singh, who had gone to take an interview of the family of a slain in Vyapam scam accused.

"It was a black Saturday yesterday. First we heard that a young journalist died while he was trying to talk to the parents of a Vyapam victim. It is high time that we went for an independent investigation under the Supreme Court`s monitoring," Tankha told ANI.

Reports say that Singh felt chest pain when he was taking the interview.

He was taken to Meghnagar hospital where he was declared brought dead.
