An independent MP from Dadra and Nagar Haveli (and Daman and Diu), Mohan Delkar, was found dead in a Mumbai hotel on Monday.
Initial investigations suggest that Delkar died by suicide as a suicide note was found.
The 58-year-old politician, a father of two, was found dead at a hotel on Marine drive.
“A suicide note has been found. Investigation is being done. The exact cause of death will be known after the post-mortem,” Mumbai Police said in a statement.
