Jigna Vora Biography

Jigna Vora Early Life And Education

Jigna Jitendra Vora, who would be 49 years old in 2023, was born in Ghatkopar, Mumbai. She attended DG Ruparel College, a University of Mumbai associate, to earn a bachelor’s degree in law. Additionally, she graduated with a diploma in public communications from Mumbai’s K. J. Somaiya Institute of Management.

She became interested in crime reporting at K. J. Somaiya because of Velly Thevar, one of her professors, and a renowned crime reporter who worked for The Times of India. She married in 1998 and relocated to Bharuch, Gujarat.

In 2004, following her divorce, she and her four-year-old son moved back to her mother’s house in Garodia Nagar, Ghatkopar. She made the decision to pursue a profession in media while raising her son alone as a single mother.

Harshaben, Vora’s mother, died on June 9, 2015, from a heart attack. Her dad was employed in Dubai. The name of her grandfather is Tulsidas Hargovindas.

Jigna Vora Career

After completing her official education, she was hired as a court reporter for the Free Press Journal (FPJ) in November 2005, where she spent 10 months. Her first assignment was to cover gangster Abu Salem’s case in the TADA court at Arthur Road Jail.

In the six years that followed, she worked her way up from rookie reporter to deputy chief of bureau for an English broadsheet, covering crimes from all angles. In 2006, Jigna started working for the Mumbai Mirror as a court reporter, covering the sessions court in Kala Ghoda, Mumbai.

Feared criminal Chhota Rajan’s wife, Sujata Nikalje, was detained in December 2005 for using the MCOCA to threaten a builder with extortion. After that, Vora started working as a senior correspondent for the Sessions Court for Mid-Day. At lunchtime, she worked with J Dey.

Her widely read article regarding the notorious encounter specialist Pradeep Sharma shocked the nation. In May 2008, she started working for Deccan Chronicle’s Asian Age magazine. As a reporter, she filled the accounts of numerous accused people, including bomb blast accused Fahmeeda, accused of killing her husband Jaya Chheda, accused of killing Neeraj Grover, and others.

Her articles on the activities of right-wing terror groups in Gujarat, the murder of gangland operator Fareed Tanasha in Tilaknagar, and an Andheri land scam involving a landlord who had been declared dead multiple times but was actually alive and well the entire time were among the stories that brought her praise.

Prior to her arrest for suspected involvement in the murder of J Dey in 2011, she served as the Deputy Chief of the Asian Age Bureau. She experienced a spiritual awakening while incarcerated and went on to become a consciousness healer and Aatmic Awareness instructor.
