He is survived by his wife, son and IFS officer Y K Sinha who is at present Indian Ambassador to Sri Lanka and is moving for his new posting to the UK, and three daughters. They said his funeral will take place tomorrow noon at the Brar Square crematorium in New Delhi.

Sinha has served as the Jammu and Kashmir Governor and led the first batch of Indian troops who entered J and K when Pakistan raiders invaded in 1947. He resigned from service after the government superseded him and appointed General A S Vaidya as the new army chief.

Lt Gen Sinha had joined army in 1943 and has also served as India’s Ambassador to Nepal and as the Governor of Assam. National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah and his son and former J-K Chief Minister Omar Abdullah condoled his death.
