Senior Mumbai Police Officer Himanshu Roy Allegedly Commits Suicide

Roy was known for his major contribution in some of the major cases in Maharashtra and he held some important posts in his career.

Mumbai Police on Friday evening released a statement saying that a suicide note had been recovered from where former ATS chief Himanshu Roy had allegedly shot himself. He was rushed to the nearby Bombay Hospital in Marine Lines where Roy, who was suffering from cancer, was declared dead on arrival at 1.47pm. He served as the joint commissioner of police, crime, from 2012 to 2014.

While Mr Roy was heading the anti-terror squad, he arrested software engineer Anees Ansari for allegedly planning to blow up the American School in Bandra Kurla complex. One of his former colleague said that he was going through unbearable pain. During his tenure as ATS chief, Roy handled several high profile cases including the investigation of IPL betting scam, arrest of diesel smuggler Mohammed Ali Shaikh, 26/11 Mumbai terror attack convict and many more.

The officer reportedly battling cancer and had gone on long leave on medical grounds.

Since last week, another four people have gone into kidney failure, and an additional 23 have been sickened overall. Robert Tauxe, director of CDC's Division of Foodborne, Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases, said previously.

A large number of police personnel, former and serving IPS and IAS officers, besides political leaders, including Union Minister Ramdas Athawale, were present for Roy's final journey. He was the youngest SP of Nashik (rural) in 1995, DCP economic offences, DCP traffic, and commissioner of police for Nashik, among others. It was detected quite late when he noticed a swelling on his body.

Actor Neel Nitin Mukesh, who was a family friend of Roy offered his condolence to the deceased IPS officer. The cancer had spread to his bones but that didn't stop him from exercising. "I had spoke to him 2 months ago and it did not seem to me that he was low". I would jokingly call him "Hercules Roy" because of his overawing athletic build.

One of Roy's neighbours said, "He was a very disciplined man". He also investigated the death of the Mid-day journalist J Dey.
