Indian television actor Kamlesh Pandey committed suicide on Monday night in Jabalpur. The actor shot himself in the chest. The small-time actor was reportedly inebriated at the time of the incident. The police have started an investigation in the case and a clearer picture will emerge after the postmortem.
According to reports, there was a rift between Kamlesh and his wife’s family which led to the altercation. The actor, who found fame playing a police officer in Crime Patrol, was in Jabalpur’s Sanjivni Nagar with his wife’s sister, Anjani Chaturvedi.
Anjani had apparently fixed her daughter’s wedding without discussing it with Kamlesh and he was very upset. He was reportedly not invited to the wedding either.
Look at some of his pictures here:
Kamlesh got drunk and created a scene at his in-law’s place. He then took out his gun and fired in the air, and then shot himself in the chest. His panicked family members got in touch with the police and called an ambulance as well but all in vain.
>While police are treating it as a case of suicide, investigations are still now. Kamlesh is survived by his wife and two daughters. Other television personalities who committed suicide this year include Pratyusha Banerjee and Sai Prashanth.
