Actor Jeetendra was left bereaved after his cousin brother committed suicide on Tuesday (14 March). Nitin Kapoor, 58, jumped to his death from the terrace of a six-storey building in Andheri (west) in Mumbai, where he lived.

The neighbours rushed him to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. As per a IndiaToday.in report, Nitin was undergoing treatment at the psychiatric department at Kokilaben Hospital in Andheri.

DCP (operation) Ashok Dudhe was quoted as saying in a PTI news agency report, “Kapoor was jobless for the last 18 years. His family resides in Hyderabad and he was staying in Mumbai at his sister’s house.”

No suicide report has been found and so the Versova police has filed an accidental death report in the case.

Nitin was married to yesteryear actress Jayasudha and is survived by his sons – Nihar and Shreayan.
