Veteran actor Mukesh Rawal, known for his role of ‘Vibhishan’ in serial ‘Ramayana’, was found dead on railway tracks in Kandivali, Railway Police said.
66-year-old Rawal was run-over by a train while crossing railway tracks, they said.
His body was found on Tuesday at 9.33 AM, but the actor’s kin identified him on Wednesday morning, Commissioner of Railway Police Niket Kaushik said.
The body was found on the tracks between Borivali and Kandivali Railway stations, Kaushik said.
“Initially, we could not find anything on the body to identify. Railway Police had issued his photographs at all police stations. His son-in-law came at the Kandivali Railway Station in search of Rawal, who had gone missing. The officials then sent him to a hospital where he identified the body,” the Commissioner of Police said.
After autopsy, the body was handed over to his family members, Kaushik said.
Apart from ‘Ramayana’, Rawal had also acted in Gujarati films and TV serials. Currently, he was working on a Gujarati TV serial ‘Nass Nass Mei Khunnas’.
