Former India Cricketer Suresh Raina’s Father Passes Away

Ghaziabad: Former India all-rounder Suresh Raina’s father, Trilokchand Raina, was battling cancer. On February 6 he passed away. Trilokchand, was a military officer. He was master at making bombs in an ordnance factory. He passed away at his Ghaziabad residence.

Raina’s teammates including Harbhajan Singh offered their condolences on social media. “Very sad to hear Suresh Raina’s father @ImRaina RIP uncle ji,” wrote Harbhajan. 

Raina’s father’s ancestral village is ‘Rainawari’ in the Jammu and Kashmir union territory of India. His father left the village after the killings of the Kashmir Pandits in the 1990s. The family settled down in Muradnagar town. His father had a 10,000 rupees salary and he couldn’t afford the high cricket coaching fees for Suresh.
