In Memoriam - Rajinder Singh Khehar


It is with much sadness that I have to inform you all of the passing, yesterday, 9th April 2017, of my dear friend, Rajinder Singh Khehar,after a long illness.  Rajinder was 88.  All his family was with him at the time he passed away.
Rajinder joined Kenya Police in 1947 and was a contemporary of our Chairman, Paddy Kearney.  He joined as a constable and rose to the rank of Superintendent of Police.  Before retiring from the police he was one of the Divisional Commanders in Nairobi Area.  All his service was in Nairobi.  He was popular not only with his fellow officers but the community at large, especially the Asian community.

When I joined the police in 1955 I was posted to the Nairobi Area special branch.  Rajinder, who was already with S.B., took me under his wing and showed me all that was to know about the "cloak & dagger" nature of the job.  I shall be ever so grateful to him.

The academic and professional achievements of his children and grand children made him very proud - and why not!

On behalf of us all in the Kenya Police Association, Mohinder, my wife, and I send our heart-felt condolences to Rajinder's wife, Dharshan, and his children.  May God bless the departed soul with eternal peace.
