A former chief of the Anti-Terror Squad of Maharashtra, Himanshu Roy was an Additional Director General of Police.

Senior IPS officer Himanshu Roy shot himself in the mouth and the resultant injury was visible right upto his skull, a doctor who first examined the deceased officer's body said. Though he was not handling mainframe crime posting as Additional Director General of Police (housing), for almost 10 years before that Roy handled two of the forces most important offices.

Roy had a stellar career graph, having handled two of the most important police postings in Mumbai - joint commissioner of police (crime) and chief of the Anti-Terrorism Squad. Roy also investigated and cracked cases such as the firing on Arif, driver of Dawood Ibrahim's brother Iqbal Kaskar and the double murder involving Vijay Palande and law graduate Pallavi Purkayastha as well as the sensational Khairlanji murder case. 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".

Three months ago, he had asked me for a reference to get an expert opinion. "Roy was in a lot of pain and took the extreme step", Patnaik said. I would jokingly call him "Hercules Roy" because of his overawing athletic build.

Mumbai terror attack convict and Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab was hanged to death during Roys tenure as Mumbai crime branch chief.
