Mumbai: Lok Sabha MP from Dadra and Nagar Haveli Mohan Delkar was found dead at a hotel in South Mumbai on Monday. According to preliminary reports, the seven-term MP died by suicide. His body has been sent for postmortem.

An official declined to comment on reports that a suicide note in Gujarati was also found with the body of the 58-year-old politician. He was a member of the Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances, Law and Justice and also a member of the Consultative Committee, Ministry of Home Affairs of the Lower House.

The body was taken to JJ Hospital for postmortem while several senior police officials including Joint Commissioner of Police, Law & Order, Vishwas Nangre Patil, Additional Commissioner of Police, South Region, Satyanarayan Chaudhary, reached the hotel where Delkar allegedly died by suicide. Police officials from Marine Drive were questioning the hotel staff to get details about Delkar and his stay at the hotel.

Mohan Sanjibhai Delkar, 58, was an Independent Member of Parliament. Mohan Delkar had left the Congress ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election. Delkar is survived by wife, a son and a daughter, news agency PTI reported. Last year, Mohan Delkar had tied up with the JDU for the local election in Dadra and Nagar Haveli after a meeting with Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.

Sources have said that Mohan Delkar had gone to Mumbai in connection with some work. An advocate for tribal rights, Delkar began his career as a trade union leader in Silvassa. He was first elected to the 9th Lok Sabha from Dadra and Nagar Haveli constituency in 1989 as a Congress nominee.
