Chief minister Fadnavis noted that Roy successfully handled several important cases. He had taken a long leave.

"Shocking. Mumbai Top Cop Himanshu Roy commits suicide at his residence". "It is a highly painful procedure and could breakdown even a strong person like Himanshu Roy, who was known for his passion for body building". During his tenure at the Crime Branch, Roy successfully investigated sensitive cases such as 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, Kamla Mill gang-rape case, IPL spot fixing case of 2013 and Minakshi Thapa murder case. He cleared the Union Public Service Commission exams and become an Indian Police Service officer, graduating with the1988 batch. A police inspector who had worked with Roy, said: "He did not believe in taking updates every week from officers like some others did". A signed suicide note has been found in which Roy admitted to being in a depressed frame of mind due to his illness and wanted no one held responsible for his actions.

"He had been suffering from cancer for almost two years and it seems he died due to the frustration", former Mumbai Police commissioner M.N. Singh told ThePrint.

But unlike Russian Federation and Iran , Israel has done little to sway the outcome of Syria's civil war . It alleged the rockets followed a "first Israeli bombardment on the town of Baath" in Quneitra province.

Roy's dedication to working out and staying in shape earned him the Schwarzenegger moniker, and he would regularly chat about his fitness regimen with cops and reporters alike, the Gulf Times reported. Doctors said his was a last-stage cancer and nothing could be done.

Mourning Roy's death, Mumbai's former police Commissioner MN Roy said, "Roy's passing away is a big loss for police, the Government and society".

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. He was equally good at solving cyber crimes and he had a key role to play in the setting up the cyber crime cell in the Mumbai police.
