Youngest daughter Evelyn Moti says her father, the late Director Criminal Investigations Department Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kishor Kumar was a great role model.

Evelyn, 24, paid tribute to his dedication to service.

“My father was a brave man and for him his work was his first priority then his family,” she said.

“He was a person who supported people whether it be emotionally or financially.

“He was an amazing person. We always looked up to him while growing up and he always taught us to be independent,” Evelyn said.

She expressed her best moment with her father was when she used to play soccer a few years back and won the Best Player of the Tournament award while her father was cheering for her from the pavilion.

“My father was such that even a stranger becomes a friend to him.

“Most of the people know us through my father.

“He used to talk to everyone and was a good friend to me and my siblings,”  she said.

She described her father as the best father, best friend in the world.

Her father always supported her throughout her life and it was very hard to accept that he was no longer with them.

“It is still hard for us to accept the fact that we will not be seeing him or hearing from him any more,” she said.

SSP Kumar passed away at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital at10.45 pm on Sunday following a short illness.

He joined the Fiji Police Force at 18 and served for 34 years.

SSP Kumar is survived by his wife and three children.

Evelyn said the date of the funeral had not been decided.
