Along with the police, other officials also came to the hotel. Joint Commissioner of Police, Law & Order, Vishwas Nangre Patil was also present. Police questioned the hotel staff in order to get some information on Delkar.
Delkar’s body was found by his driver. On Monday, when the driver went to Delkar’s hotel room and tried knocking on the door, Delkar didn’t open the door, nor there was any answer. The driver requested the hotel staff to open the door but that failed too. He called up Delkar on his phone and also informed the family about it. After a long hustle, the driver decided to enter Delkar’s room through the balcony.
He entered the room from the balcony through the adjacent room. Upon entering, he saw Delkar hanging from the fan. He immediately called up the hotel staff and informed the police about it. The police along with a forensic team arrived at the hotel.
