Singh, 52, was unwell for the past several weeks. He is survived by wife Raseshwari Rajya Lakshmi who belongs to the royal family of Nepal and 2 sons, Chaitanya Raj Singh Bhati and Janmejaya Raj Singh Bhati. A pall of glom descended in Jaisalmer on news of the former ruler’s demise. The flag was flown at half-mast at the Sonar fort where the royal family resides. Singh was admitted to a private hospital in Jodhpur on Dec 15 after he complained of stomach pain.
