Actor Navin Nischol, charged with abetting the suicide of his wife, was acquitted by a sessions court in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Geetanjali Nischol, who hung herself at her house at Mahim in central Mumbai in April 2006, had held Navin and his elder brother Praveen responsible for her decision to end life.
A suicide note left by Geetanjali alleged Navin had turned alcoholic and did not heed to her requests to give up drinking. Praveen had supported his brother on the issue, the lady had said.
