Ajay Pal Lamba, an Additional Commissioner of Police, Jaipur, Rajasthan, is best known for his commendable work in the Asaram case.
An electronics engineer by education, Lamba always wanted to give back to the nation but was clueless how.
He has been a restless youngster since his childhood,
Born in Sikar, Rajasthan in July 1978, he changed around seven jobs before selecting the IPS service.
He solved several cases but Asaram case remains the biggest assignment he ever got. Ajay Lamba has received over 1,625 letters threatening he would be killed and his family eliminated if he pursued a case against Asaram. At one point, he had to stop sending his daughter to school because of the threats. Even his wife could not step out.
Lamba was also offered bribes to stop making investigation in the case.
But his persistence and Asaram’s conviction re-instilled public’s faith in system in India.
Asaram presently is reeling being bars in Jodhpur jail after being convicted of sexually assaulting a minor.
