From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
Devesh Bhasin was an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper who served with Edward Buck and Taylor Miles during the Human-Covenant War, presumably as part of Alpha-Nine. Both men held a high opinion of the Marine, having served alongside him in several battles. On July 17, 2552, the drag chutes on Bhasin's SOEIV suffered a heat shield malfunction as he was deployed in the Battle of Sigma Octanus IV. This led a violent crash that resulted in his death.
In his final interview for the boarding of Solemn Penance on October 20, Miles mentioned Bhasin as a possible replacement for a rookie trooper who had been assigned to the new team. Buck informed Miles that their former teammate had died months prior.
