The late Corporal Rajendra Nair was described as a very dedicated worker who had a wealth of experience and knowledge.

The comment was made by Assistant Superintendent Ram Prasad in his eulogy during the homecoming service for Cpl Nair at his home at Kalabu, Nasinu, yesterday.

Cpl Nair served in the Police force for 30 years and at various Police stations and died last Thursday.

The 52-year-old was enlisted in the force on January 23, 1989, after successfully completing the Basic Recruit Course at the Fiji Police Academy.

From 1989 Cpl Nair served at Totogo Police Station before joining Police Mobile at Nasinu and from 1996 Cpl Nair served at the Navua Police Station under the Traffic Unit.

In 2008 Cpl Nair successfully served on tour of duty under the United Nations Mission in Liberia. He returned and continued his service at the Navua Police Station as Traffic Officer, before being transferred to the Nasinu Police Station in 2012 where he continued to serve as a traffic officer.

In 2013 he moved to the National Traffic Command Centre where he was a shift supervisor and later Operations Officer. In 2017 Cpl Nair was transferred to the Force Transport HQ where he served as the Lease Vehicle Co-ordinator until his untimely passing.

“He was a self-motivated officer who was hard working and required little to no supervision when given instructions. He was always ready to give advice,” ASP Prasad said.

Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho led a team of senior officers to the homecoming service.

Cpl Nair hailed from Vunitivi, Ra. He was survived by his wife, Aradhna Radhika, and two children Sidhant Nair, 24, and Namrata Nair, 20.

After the homecoming service he was cremated at Wainibuku Crematorium.
