Mumbai: Encounter Specialist Daya Nayak has been reinstated in the state police department after cancellation of his suspension, said a senior police officer on Monday.
Sub Inspector Nayak was suspended in June last year for not joining duty and being on sick leave for a very long time. At that time his posting was in Nagpur area.

Earlier, Nayak was under suspension for six years and was later reinstated in June 2012.

A 1995-batch police officer, he was suspended in 2006 after the Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau arrested him on the charge of possessing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.

In 2010, the Supreme Court quashed the charges against him. He was reinstated in 2012 and posted in Local Arms wing of the department.

After a brief stint there, he was transferred to the ‘high profile’ west region (Bandra to Andheri) of the city.

Nayak is known to have killed more than 80 gangsters in encounters, including Vinod Matkar, Rafik Dabba, Sadik Kalia and three Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives.
