India step Bhuvneshwar kumarKiran’s father, Pal Singh, has died at his Meerut residence after battling liver cancer for the past eight months. He was 63 years old and survived by his wife Indresh Devi and his son and daughter Bhuvneshwar and Rekha, respectively.
According to ESPNCricinfo, Singh was first discovered with the disease in September last year when Bhuvneshwar played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the UAE for IPL.
“Of course, Bhuvneshwar’s return from the IPL to the UAE, where he represented Sunrisers Hyderabad, was mainly due to his father’s health,” the report said.
Singh was on treatment, including chemotherapy, at the All Institute of Medical Science here, after consulting doctors in the UK. He was hospitalized two weeks ago in a private facility in Meerut after his condition worsened.
“Kiran Pal Singh was released on Tuesday, but he gave in two days later,” the report said. Singh was a retired deputy inspector at the Uttar Pradesh Police Department.
