Former Parliamentarian and noted jurist L M Singhvi breathed his last in New Delhi on Saturday. He was 76.

Singhvi, a constitutional expert, was born in Jodhpur in 1931.

A scholar of Jain history and culture, he was one of India's longest-serving envoys to Britain (early 1991 to end 1997).

A linguist and a prolific author, Singhvi also served as a member of the Third Lok Sabha between 1962 and 1967. He was conferred the Padma Bhushan in 1998 and was elected to the Rajya Sabha in 1999.

He was the advocate general of Rajasthan from 1972 to 1977 and had also spearheaded the Indian delegation to the UN Conference on Human Rights in Vienna in 1993.

Singhvi was also president of the Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts and a member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague as well as the Commission of Inquiry into Administration of Justice in Trinidad and Tobago.

The septuagenarian, who was ailing for the past few weeks, is survived by his wife Kamala, son Abhishek Singhvi who is a senior advocate and a spokesman for the Congress and daughter Abhilasha. Singhvi’s cremation will take place on Sunday morning at the Lodhi Crematorium in the Capital.
