    Pramod Kumar Jha’s battle with life ended after nearly a fortnight on life support systems in the ICU at Sterling Hospital on Sunday afternoon. Jha (47) was suffering from liver cirrhosis and was recovering till he had brain haemorrhage which proved fatal, said a colleague who was by his side when the end came.
    A 1986 batch IPS officer from Bihar, Jha is survived by wife Kalyani, a son, and two daughters.
    Jha was posted as inspector general of police CID (Crime) recently after the Election Commission removed him as joint commissioner, Ahmedabad city before the December 2007 Assembly elections, which had left him without a posting.
    Though critics would remember him for his wayward habits and some unsavoury brushes with the law, colleagues salute his investigating skills. Jha had deep insight into the underworld controlled by D-company. During his illustrious career, Jha cracked the famous RDX landing case off the Gosabara coast in Porbander and recently exposed sinister goings on in the Sabarmati Central jail in a high court-appointed committee that he headed.
    Jha’s career was at its peak as superintendent of police of Jamnagar district in the early 90s. It was then under the Chimanbhai Patel government that Jha had sought to raid Rama Nakha Gadhvi, a close associate of the chief minister and an arms dealer.
    Knowing Chimanbhai would not allow it, he approached the then home minister CD Patel at Gandhinagar and confided in him about Gadhvi’s antecedents. CD Patel promptly instructed the then DGP AK Tandon and Jha to go ahead with the raids, while the home minister himself camped in Jamnagar. Jha led the raids to Gadhvi’s home and found a cache of arms worth Rs 1 crore in 1993.
    This became a major bone of contention between Chimanbhai and CD Patel. His close associates say, with Jha, the entire mystery behind the Gosabara arms landing case will be buried, because he was the officer first tipped off about the consignment of RDX and weapons sent by Dawood Ibrahim to carry out the Mumbai serial blasts in 1993, to land off the Gosabara shore in Porbander in January that year.
    The case turned controversial since the actual offence of the landing was registered under Tada at ‘B’ division police station in Jamnagar where Jha was SP, while the landing happened in Gosabara, Porbander. This was apparently because the first tip-off about the reported landing was received by Jha. During this time, Jha was a feared man among mafia gangs of Saurashtra including the Mers of Porbander.
    His detailed report on the Sabarmati jail in 2006 after a convict was murdered by a rival gang in his cell put several officers in trouble because of the expose on the corruption behind bars and ‘haftas’ charged in jail and the freedom that some prisoners enjoyed.

    Dear Desh Gujarat

    I read with great sorrow about the news of the passing away of Mr. P.K. Jha (CID Crime).

    Shri Jha was an able and erudite IPS officer with great detective skills. He was fearless, unbiased and sincere to the purpose.

    I would refer here to two cases handled by him where he showed his excellence. Firstly, when he himself took part in recovering rupees six crores worth of smuggled silver at Jakhau Port in Kutch. At that time, he showed exemplary courage and confidence since there were many odds against him. Secondly, in the case of Mr. Pankaj Trivedi’s murder case, he left no stone unturned to find out the real culprits. It was a difficult case since some of the culprits were in the police department itself. Also because Swadhyay Parivar members were trying to misguide the police by appearing for interrogation at the police stations but were giving information which were misleading. The matter was also complicated since the culprits were getting information on what was happening in police offices.

    If you would like to see Late Mr P. K Jha giving a statement on Late Mr Pankajbhai Trivedi’s murder case then please watch the video above.

    I would like to send my sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to his wife, his daughters, son and friends.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Long-term alcoholism is the primary cause of cirrhosis. Men and women respond differently to alcohol. Although most men can safely consume two to five drinks a day, one or two drinks a day can cause liver damage in women. Individual tolerance to alcohol varies, but people who drink more and drink more often have a higher risk of developing cirrhosis. In some
    people, one drink a day can cause liver scarring.
    Alcohol is absorbed from the small intestine, and the blood carries it directly into the liver, where it becomes the preferred energy source. In the liver, alcohol converts to toxic chemicals, such as acetaldehyde (AcH), which trigger the production of powerful immune factors called cytokines. These molecules in large amounts can cause inflammation and tissue injury and are proving to be major culprits in the destructive process in the liver. AcH is particularly being researched because it plays a role in most actions of alcohol, including damaging effects on the liver that may lead to cirrhosis. The injured liver eventually is unable to breakdown fatty acids, compounds that make up fat. Over time, then, fat accumulates, further impairing the liver’s ability to absorb oxygen and increasing its susceptibility to injury. During the initial phase, the fat-laden liver becomes greatly enlarged, but it eventually shrinks as cirrhosis develops.
