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

Decorated senior police officer and Additional Director General of Police (Maharashtra) Himanshu Roy reportedly killed himself at his residence on May 11. Roy's family members rushed him to Bombay Hospital in Marine Lines where he was declared dead on arrival. Of the many senior police officials who visited Roy's residence, Manoj Kumar Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (zone 1) said, "It is very saddening and shocking. Possibly he sensed burdened and chose he could barely take it anymore", stated special prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. The possibility is that for this reason he took this step. He was in-charge of the Economic Offences Wing, he served as the police commissioner in Nashik, and as the head of the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad. A 1988-batch IPS officer, he trained with the 1989 batch and emerged a topper. In Dey's case, the then chief minister had issued instructions that he wanted an update on the investigations every six hours. Former Mumbai Police chief Arup Patnaik was quoted by NDTV, "He was a fitness freak".

With a sterling career to his credit, Roy had been ailing with cancer for some time and was on medical leave when he chose to take the extreme step.

In recent months, his colleagues and journalists had heard him talk about retiring early from the police force.




According to Dr. Nagarkar, Roy first developed cancer in his kidneys in 2000, "He underwent extensive chemotherapy and surgery and succeeded in removing those tumours from his kidneys".

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 special public prosecutors who worked with Roy in prominent cases such as the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack fondly remembered him. The primary investigations revealed that Roy was in his bedroom and his wife in another room when he shot himself.
