When a Grounded i.e. earthed capacitr is brought near, the charge on the capacitor is grounded. it is similar to grounding of charge when a grounded conductor is brought near a carged conductor.
So since V= Q/C and C remains constant (as it depends on geometry of the capacitor)
Thus: the potential decreases as charge stored decreases.
