We've lost a capable officer: Fadnavis on Himanshu Roy's demise

  • Himanshu Roy Commits Suicide Mumbai's Top Cop Was Suffering From Cancer

Himanshu Roy, Additional Director General of Police (Establishment), allegedly shot himself with his licensed revolver at his home in Mumbai's Nariman Point around 12.40 pm.

A tough-as-nails Indian lawman dubbed the "Arnold Schwarzenegger" of Mumbai police committed suicide following a long battle with cancer, according to reports Friday.

During his preparations for the UPSC exams in Mumbai, he met his future wife Bhawna, who subsequently became an Indian Administrative Service officer.

In his career spanning 15 years, he was also part of the ATS when it arrested software engineer Anees Ansari for allegedly plotting to blast the Americal School at Mumbai's Bandra Kurla Complex. The 1998-batch IPS officer leaves behind a legacy of pioneering police work, including his efforts against cyber-terrorism, match-fixing and crimes against women. Himanshu Roy had served as Maharashtra ATS chief.




Among Roy's most sensitive cases was the murder of journalist J Dey, involving gangster Chhota Rajan. The possibility is that for this reason he took this step.

This is really a matter of sorrow that we have lost a bright officer. For four years - from 2004 to 2008 - he was the commissioner of Nashik police, following which he returned to Mumbai. "This was completely unexpected". "He was very mature and cool-headed". He was reportedly suffering from cancer. It was detected quite late when he noticed a swelling on his body. "Roy was in a lot of pain and took the extreme step", Patnaik said.

Himanshu's grit - and that's why I find it hard to believe he killed himself - was such that he found it necessary to proceed on leave because of cancer only two years ago, although he was diagnosed with the disease a year earlier. The cancer had spread to his bones. When I told him that his skin had darkened, he said it was effect of chemotherapy.

"I always perceived Roy as a strong person who was fond of going to gym". As soon as she heard the shot, she rushed to see what happened, only to find her husband dead on the floor. "Of course, a police investigation will reveal the details as it was an unnatural death", the former city commissioner of police said.
