Maharashtra government has suspended its 'encounter specialist' Daya Nayak from service for the second time in his career. No official notification is available and a possible reason for suspension could that he has not joined duty after his transfer.

A 1995-batch police officer, Nayak was under suspension for nearly six-and-a-half years after the Anti-Corruption Bureau arrested him in 2006 following complaints by former journalist Ketan Tirodkar that he owned assets disproportionate to his known sources of income. The ACB had also arrested his two friends, who lent their names to the transfer of his wealth.

 Nayak, who was reinstated in service in June 2012, was last year transferred to Nagpur, pending inquiries against him. However, he did not join duty there.

In 2010, the Supreme Court quashed all the charges against him under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). He was reinstated in 2012 and posted in a local arms wing of the department. After a brief stint there, he was transferred to the west region (Bandra to Andheri), considered a high-profile zone in Mumbai.

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.

Daya Nayak was not aware of any suspension order.
