Line of Duty viewers are convinced that the identity of the mysterious 'H' was finally revealed in the latest episode (S6 E3), with many of them taking to Twitter to share their theory that PCC Rohan Sindwhani is the corrupt officer we've been looking for all along.

The theory probably isn't that surprising to you if you caught the latest instalment of the hit police drama. PCC Rohan Sindwhani didn't exactly seem hugely keen on cooperating with AC-12, and made a few comments that had Hasting's doing his signature 'suspicious-of-you' face.

In case you need a refrehser, Sindwhani was brought into Central Police as the new Police and Crime Commissioner sometime between series four and five. His job is to oversee the smooth-running of the police force, which includes dealing with scandals and stamping out corruption, but as we know... that hasn't been going so well.

In the latest episode Hastings goes to speak with Sindwhani and DCC Andrea Wise in her office, because the higher ups aren't happy with AC-12's arrest and release of DCI Jo Davidson and the subsequent arrest of Farida Jatri. Sindwhani even tells Hastings, "I’ve had to call in favours from half a dozen editors to keep this out of the press."

Of course, this was his first strike, with fans on Twitter quickly questioning his seemingly collusive relationship with the media. Sindwhani also raised eyebrows when he reiterated his lie from series five, that institutional corruption between the OCG and the police force doesn't exist. He says to Hastings, "Operation Peartree concluded there is no institutional corruption in this force", before adding perhaps the most suspicious line of the whole scene, "You’re making this quite difficult for me."

All this comes in the same episode as the discovery of a tape of murdered journalist Gail Vella's interview with Sindwhani, in which she asks him why high ranking police officers who were found to be child abusers were not brought to justice. Sindwhani shoots daggers at Vella before responding that the accusations were "before my term" and storming out of the interview.

And if all that wasn't enough, fans were quick to remind us all that of Sindwhani's right hand person back in series five: none other than corrupt-as-they-come Gill Biggeloe.

It's not looking good for Sindwhani, is it?
