He is known to all as an inspiring and efficient leader of the team marked with indomitable courage and unperturbed focus. A sharp detective and a no-nonsense cop, he's known for his unmoving dedication towards duty, which he believes comes above everything else. He proves this by killing his own son, Nakul, a criminal, placing duty over his fatherhood.

Not a single criminal, no matter how clever, has ever managed to outwit him for long. No hurdle can throw him off his path. He expects perfection from his team and cares for them, but when it comes to work, he exonerates his juniors off suspicion only if their alibi is proved. No matter how badly he scolds his juniors, he always has a soft corner for them and loves them like his own children. As test for his tenure, he had once lost his eye sight to catch a criminal and went through some tough times. He solved a few cases in spite of his blindness. Later he regained it. He's a living example of dedication, decorum, and humanity.
