Gen VK Singh wrongly tweets announcing death of Arjan Singh”

Marshal of the Indian Air Force Arjan Singh on Saturday was hospitalised as his condition was termed as critical.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also visited him in Army Hospital R&R, New Delhi.

Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman visited the marshal in the hospital.

However, an IAF statement issued a few minutes ago said: "Marshal of the Indian Air Force Arjan Singh is critically ill". He was suspected to have had a massive heart attack in the morning and was brought to this hospital.

As per ANI, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also reached the hospital to pay a visit to the Marshal.

Born in Pakistan's Lyalpur before the seperation of the two countries, Singh joined the Royal Indian Air Force when he was just 19-year-old.

Arjan Singh is the only five-star general of the Air Force who was awarded the lifetime rank in 2002.

An icon of the Indian military, Singh led a young IAF into war and to victory in 1965 when Pakistan launched its Operation Grand Slam with an armoured thrust targeted at the vital town of Akhnoor. Prime Minister Modi too took to Twitter and said that he is praying for the speedy recovery of Arjan Singh. In 2016, the crucial air base at Panagarh was renamed Air Force Station after the Marshal.

Arjan Singh once sold of his farm house near Delhi and in return he got about Rs. 2 crore with that essentially something that he entrusted with to a trust that was devoted to the welfare of the retired Air Force personnel. Upon retirement from IAF in 1969, he was appointed the Ambassador to Switzerland.
