Maharashtra IPS officer officer Himanshu Roy, who committed suicide this afternoon, was cremated with full state honours here late on Saturday.
A suicide note penned by him, recovered by the police this evening, said that he was tired of battling cancer for over two years and was taking the extreme step, and nobody should be held responsible for it.
His flower bedecked body draped in the national Tricolor was taken in an ambulance from his Nariman Point home to the Chandanwadi Crematorium at Charni Road around 9.30 p.m.
A large number of police personnel, former and serving IPS and IAS officers, besides political leaders, including Union Minister Ramdas Athawale, were present for Roy's final journey.
Besides, scores of IPS and IAS officers, lawyers and other officials grieved Roy's sudden death.
