According to a report, the actor, in a drunken frenzy, shot himself  in the chest. According to an another report, there was a rift between Kamlesh and his wife’s family which led to the fight. 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. Kamlesh Pandey was reportedly not invited to the wedding either.


When the police arrived after being contacted by Pandey's family, he was already dead. A police investigation is now underway. Kamlesh is survived by his wife and two daughters.
