A TV show guest died while giving a talk on a live programme on Doordarshan’s DD Kashir channel on Monday morning.

Rita Jitendra, former secretary of J&K Academy of Art, Culture and Languages, was talking about her life on ‘Good Morning J&K’ programme when she suffered a cardiac arrest and collapsed.

She was rushed to Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital (SMHS) where doctors declared her dead on arrival.
