How to remove specific row from table using Java

Dear Team,

I have a requirement to delete an row from a table. Here the row can sometimes hold data and sometimes it is empty. In either case I need to delete the row.

I am attaching the sample document for my requirement. In that sample document in first table need to delete the rows 5 and 6 and in second table the last two rows.

Kindly help me in providing some inputs to achieve the functionality.

Thanks and Regards
