As you'd imagine, being Thanos is a huge advantage, as he's so physically superior to every other player in the field. Thanos corrects the Asgardian that he should have aimed for the head and you see the instant regret on Thor's face.

"With positive progress like his, it would be a mistake to say that he killed himself because of the illness". Roy, who was heading Mumbai Crime Branch at that time, personally investigated the case and collected all the evidence which led to conviction of underworld gangster Chhota Rajan.

As a young officer too, Roy handled several significant posts. He lost his elite posting as chief of the anti-terror squad and was moved to an insignificant role, the additional director general in charge of police housing.

"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. Roy went to Campion School and later studied commerce at St Xavier's College. However, as much as he is remembered for his policing skills, many in the force remember him for his impressive personality. He is also credited with setting up Mumbai's Cyber Crime cell.

Roy oversaw the investigation into the August 2013 gang-rape of a woman photo-journalist inside the desolate Shakti Mills Compound in central Mumbai, which culminated in death sentence for three of the accused.
