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.

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.
