Hundreds of people from all works of life paid their last respects to Fiji Police Force’s Director Criminal Investigations Department Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Kishor Kumar, yesterday at his residence in Nadawa, Nasinu.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho led a team of senior Police officers to present their i-reguregu at Mr Kumar’s family home where the funeral rites and service was held.

In his eulogy, deputy director CID SSP Eparama Waqa said Mr Kumar was a joyful man who lived his live to the fullest.

“Never at any time that he seriously expressed nor indicated any sign of sickness or illness, something he safeguarded until his passing away,” SSP Waqa said.

A funeral procession was followed later by Brigadier-General Qiliho and his team of senior officers with family and friends led by the Fiji Police Force brass band from their home till the Nadawa main road.

Brigadier-General Qiliho, in an earlier statement, said he regarded SSP Kumar as someone who had dedicated his entire working life to serving the people of Fiji.

“The organisation will not only miss an officer who had vast knowledge and experience in his role as a Police officer, but an officer who has grown to be a great friend to all those he encountered in the course of his duties,” he said.

SSP Kumar was enlisted in the Fiji Police Force on January 18, 1982 after attending the Basic Recruits Course passing out as a Police Constable. In 1998, he graduated as a qualified CID officer after attending the CID qualifying course.
