Bollywood villain Ranjeet revealed on Wednesday that his driver’s dead body had been found in his swimming pool.
Whether it was an accident or a case of suicide is yet to be ascertained, said the actor.
The body of Nagraj Gowda was found on Tuesday night.
“My wife went to monitor his sugar last night. She found his body in our swimming pool. We immediately pulled him out and took him to the hospital, but he was declared dead before admission,” Ranjeet said.
The driver had worked with Ranjeet for the past 30 years.
“He was like our family,” said the actor, who featured in films such as Laawaris and Namak Halal.
“We still don’t know whether it was suicide or by accident. The case is with Juhu police station right now. I really don’t know whether he fell into the water or jumped. We don’t how he slipped out of the room when his brother and son both were there.”
According to reports, 44-year-old Gowda was suffering from health issues and had diabetes. He was also undergoing dialysis.
Gowda’s last rites will take place in his hometown of Karnataka.
