Former Jammu & Kashmir Governor Lieutenant General(Retd.) Srinivas Kumar Sinha passed away on Thursday after a brief illness .
He passed at R.R. Hospital, New Delhi. He is survived by his wife, son and three daughters.
In 1983 when Indira Gandhi was planning to take military action against alleged Sikh militants, Lt Gen Sinha, who was the Deputy Army Chief, said a firm no and counselled Indira Gandhi against storming Harmandir Sahib (the Golden Temple). She rejected the advice and Punjab along with parts of India suffered a long trauma as a consequence.
