Dr Ajit Mehrotra practiced at Windsor Medical Centre, Leeds Road, Dewsbury.

He was born October 29, 1941, and came to the UK for further studies after passing his master’s degree in surgery in India in 1969.

After working in various hospitals in the north of England he settled in Dewsbury with his family as a GP in 1973.

Dewsbury colleague Dr Hanume Thimmegowda said: “He worked at a single handed practice and was a very conscientious doctor who was popular amongst his colleagues and patients alike.

“He was very well established in medical politics locally and was a member of the local medical committee since the 1980s becoming chairman where he served until his death.

“Colleagues respected his stance and he was fair to everybody. He is greatly missed by his family, patients, friends and medical professionals locally.”

Dr Mehrotra was a member of the Heckmondwike Rotary Club for many years until his death, participating in various charities and raising funds for local charities along with his club.

His funeral took place in Bradford and was attended by many doctors, patients, Rotarians and many friends.
