‘I was devastated that on 26th June, Special Constable Resham Singh Nahal died at his home.
‘Resham was at home after suffering life-changing injuries from an RTC when on duty last year.
‘I spoke to him on the Monday on the week of his death, and we discussed how he could continue as a Special and how he was recovering.
‘He was an honourable officer and a man of great faith.
‘A post mortem will determine if his death relates to his injury but the force will honour his service when his funeral can take place’.
A spokesperson for the National Sikh Police Association said:
‘It is with a heavy heart we share the devastating news of the death of Special Constable Resham Singh Nahal.
‘We send our sincere condolences to his family, his colleagues and all affected by this tragic loss’.
