With profound grief and deep sorrow, we regret to inform the sad and untimely demise of Veteran Lt Col RS Negi (former CO of 5/11 GR), on 24 Jul 2019 at Kailash Hospital, Dehradun after prolonged illness.
Col Rajendra Negi was a very good Regimental officer and a good human being. After his premature retirement form service, he had met with a serious accident in 1992 with head injury but had recovered. Ever since, has not been in touch with the Regiment. He would be missed by the Kiranti Fraterniity. Void created by his demise would be difficult to fill.
On behalf of Gen Bipin Rawat, PVSM, UYSM, AVSM, YSM, SM, VSM, ADC, COAS, President Gorkha Bde and Col 11 GR & Sikkim Scouts and all ranks of the Regiment, we pray to Durga Mata to grant eternal peace to the departed soul and give strength and fortitude to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss.
He is survived by Mrs Chandrkala Negi (Wife) and son Tarun and daughter Preeti who are working in IT Sector.
