India's 'super cop' kills himself following cancer battle

India's 'super cop' kills himself following cancer battle

Again that year, he cracked the sensational killing of missing Bollywood starlet Laila Khan, who was murdered with five family members at an isolated country house in Nashik. During the period between 2004-2007, he continued to serve as commissioner of Nasik police following which he was appointed as joint commissioner of police in Mumbai.

Born on June 23, 1963, Mr Roy was serving as Additional Director General of Police and was often called a "fitness freak" and a "supercop" by his friends.

According to initial reports, Himanshu Roy was suffering from cancer and undergoing treatment, and was on long leave.

A "Mumbai boy", Roy studied in the prestigious St. Xaviers College and became a Chartered Accountant. 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.




Maharashtra's Specialist Specialist IPS Officer Himanshu Roy has committed suicide.

By Arup Patnaik I heard in disbelief on Friday afternoon that Himanshu Roy had shot himself dead. It's very sad that young officer like him had to shoot himself.

Himanshu Roy, who handled a number of high-profile cases including those related to the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and IPL spot-fixing, would leave a deep impact on people with his dramatic moustache, rippling muscles, and a rich baritone, before cancer took its toll. Senior colleague MN Singh told NDTV, "He was a very bright officer". Between 2004 and 2007 he was the Commissioner of Police in Nasik and In 2009, he was made the Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) of Mumbai. I would jokingly call him "Hercules Roy" because of his overawing athletic build. I referred him to a doctor and it was then after check-ups that it was found that the cancer had spread to his brain. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis too expressed his condolences. "We have lost a stellar officer, who was cool headed and delivered come what may", he added.

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