This is really a matter of sorrow that we have lost a bright officer. Himanshu Roy, a senior Mumbai Police officer allegedly committed suicide using his service revolver at his own home in Mumbai at nearly 01:40 pm today. He was brought dead to hospital. He was involved in many high profile cases such as The IPL Spot-fixing 2013, the murder of Pallavi Purkayastha and The J Dey Murder.
Further Mr. Himanshu Roy was 54 years old and suffering from cancer. Arup Patnaik, one of his colleagues, said: “He was a fitness freak. He was at an advanced stage of cancer and couldn’t take it anymore. It is very, very unfortunate.”
He was such a charismatic leader. He was the Indian Police Services (IPS) officer of 1988 batche. Moreover, he arrested software engineer Anees Ansari for allegedly planning to blow up the American School when he was heading the anti-terror squad.”He was a very bright officer. Such a tragedy” said MN Singh, who was his superior once. This is really a matter of sorrow for Mumbai and our country also that we have lost a great Police Officer.
