Deleting file name

I need a way to remove all the file names with they are extension from a line of a document. For example:

I have doc named "gara" with the following content:


Code:
/media/gogo/6651-FEAB/Desktop/Desktop.jpg
/media/gogo/6651-FEAB/Desktop.pdf
/media/gogo/6651-FEAB/linux/logo1.jpg
/media/gogo/6651-FEAB/eks/HDD.Regenerator.2011-RES/INFOS/Proud Lion.doc

i need a way to remove the Desktop.jpg from the first line, Desktop.pdf from second line,

Code:
logo1.txt from 3 ed line and 
Proud Lion.doc from the 4 th line.

Thanks in advance.
