A staffer of a leading Marathi channel allegedly committed suicide by jumping before a train at Lower Parel station, Railway Police said today.

Nitin Shirke, who took the extreme step, was working as sound engineer for the channel, a GRP official said.

Moments before he allegedly committed suicide, in his post, he held a female colleague "responsible" for his death. In the post, he claimed that he was in love with the female colleague, who "used" him for three years, added the official.
