My deep condolences on the deaths of Indian Chief of Defense Staff General Rawat, his wife, and colleagues who perished in today’s tragic accident. We’ll remember Gen. Rawat as an exceptional leader who served his country and contributed to the U.S.-India defense relationship. https://t.co/yjLv9R05on— Secretary Antony Blinken (@SecBlinken) December 8, 2021
The couple met after CDS Rawat’s father, Laxman Singh Rawat – who was also an Army officer, sought for the hand of Madhulika for the late general. “He wrote to my father late Mrigendra Singh and that’s how the marriage talks began,” Yash told news agency PTI.
CDS Rawat and his wife Madhulika had their roots from two different states, with the late general hailing from Uttarakhand while she belonged to Shahdol district in Madhya Pradesh. BIPIN RAWAT Helicopter Crash Video
Reminiscing fond memories of his sister, Yash said their maternal grandfather lived in Lucknow, and that is where Madhulika was born in 1960s. The CDS got married to Madhulika in Delhi 35 years ago.
Yash’s daughter, Bandhvi Singh, who was present at the official residence of the CDS in Delhi on Friday to pay last respects to his mortal remains along with his wife Madhulika, is a national-level shooting player.
The CDS’ niece recalled a memory about the time she spent with him at his official residence a few months before. Bandhvi said that she had returned from Peru at the time after participating in a world shooting championship, and as it was Dussehra, the late General had taken her to see the festivities by the Gorkha Regiment soldiers. “As I shoot rifle as a sport, he wanted me to get blessings of the Goddess,” Bandhvi said, adding that she will “cherish” all these memories now.

The late CDS Rawat studied in St Edward School in Shimla, and then joined the National Defence Academy (NDA), Khadakwasla in Maharashtra. He was commissioned into the 11th Gorkha Rifles of the Indian Army in December 1978, and took over as the chief of Indian Army in December 2016. He was appointed as India’s first CDS on December 31, 2019.
CDS Rawat and his wife Madhulika were killed on December 8 after the Indian Air Force (IAF) helicopter they were on board crashed near Coonoor in Tamil Nadu. Along with them, 11 other Armed Forces personnel, including the chopper pilot Wing Commander Prithvi Singh Chauhan, also lost their lives.
