The regular was found hanging from a rope in his bunk. Paramedics from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) pronounced the regular dead on site at about 3.05pm. The police is currently investigating the regular's death and the SAF is lending their assistance to the soldier’s family in this time of grief.
Many netters have flocked to MINDEF's FB post on the matter to express their grief and sorrows for the regular's death. Has there been too many deaths coming from our uniform groups of late?
