Superintendent of Police Hemadh Kumar was described as an honest, humble and caring person during his funeral service yesterday.

He had dedicated 24 years of his life to the service of the Fiji Police Force and had loved it like a second family.

A funeral service for the late Superintendent was held at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Suva.

A funeral procession led by the Commissioner of Police Brigadier- General Sitiveni Qiliho, senior Police officers and Fiji Police Force band was accorded for the late Superintendent.

Delivering the eulogy on behalf of the Fiji Police Force, the deputy director of Intelligence Bureau Superintendent Vuetasau Tumeicavai said the Fiji Police Force had been a second home for his friend.

The late Mr Kumar, 53, joined the force in 1985 as a constable and during the course of his career had participated and represented the Fijian Police in several local and international seminars and workshops.

Through his hard work SP Kumar had been promoted several times and risen through the ranks to become Corporal, Sergeant, Inspector, Assistant Superintendent of Police and was Superintendent of Police at the time of his death.

“He attended the New Zealand Police Illicit Drugs Organised Crime programme, attended border control awareness workshops and completed the Special Branch Refresher Course,” Superintendent Tumeicavai said.
