Mumbai, February 22, 2021
In an apparent case of suicide, Mohan S Delkar, the Lok Sabha member from the Union Territory of Dradra & Nagar Haveli, was found hanging in a Mumbai hotel room on Monday morning, officials said.
The prima facie cause of death of Delkar, the leader of the Bharatiya Navshakti Party, is suspected to be suicide by hanging, and police have recovered a suicide note from the death scene, said an official.
Police are investigating when and why he arrived in Mumbai and checked into the Hotel Sea Green South, a sea-facing hotel on Marine Drive, where his body was recovered this morning.
They are also investigating who was with him or who he had interacted with, and other details.
"The Marine Drive Police team is at the spot. A suicide note has also been recovered. Investigation is being carried out. Prima facie, it's a case of hanging, but the exact cause of death will be known only after the post-mortem examination is conducted," a Mumbai Police spokesperson told IANS.
A former Congress leader, Delkar, 58, was a seven-term Member of Parliament, representing the Union Territory of Dadra & Nagar Haveli, adjoining Maharashtra and Gujarat, from 1989 to 2009 and again since 2019.
