  • Former Maharashtra ATS chief Himanshu Roy allegedly commits suicide

Mumbai, May 11 Maharashtra Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, opposition leaders as well as the prosecutors who had worked with senior IPS officer Himanshu Roy today condoled his death, calling it a loss for the state police. Himanshu Roy also led the investigations into several big cases including the 2013 Indian Premier League spot-fixing case.

The 54-year-old was battling cancer and had been on medical leave for over a year.

Roy is credited with being involved in the solving of a string of prominent cases, including the murders of journalist J Dey, fringe Bollywood actor Laila Khan and law graduate Pallavi Purkhayasta in Mumbai.

"Lipstick Under My Burkha" Actress Aahana Kumra also shared, "Himanshu Roy. RIP".

After this came Roy's stint with the Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS), during which he supervised the arrest of software engineer Anees Ansari for allegedly planning a bomb blast at the American School at Bandra Kurla Complex.

Roy was Additional Director General of Police, Mumbai police.

"Whatever the reasons behind his step, the police department has lost a good officer".


One of his colleagues, MN Singh, was quoted in a media report saying he was a very bright officer.

In 2009, he became the Mumbai Police Joint Commissioner. "This was completely unexpected".

"He was a fitness freak".

"Roy had been suffering from cancer for the past three years". It's very sad that young officer like him had to shoot himself. It was detected quite late when he noticed a swelling on his body. "It saddens me to say, I can not believe my meeting with him would be the last one", said Patil.

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, however, spread later to his brain for which he was to undergo a surgery.

One of Roy's neighbours said, "He was a very disciplined man". The option was to go in for surgery, but I think Roy knew there wasn't much hope for him. This is my hunch.
