RJD Chief Minister Vinay Munde was found dead in his residence on Wednesday.
The body of the 58-year-old was found by a private party in his room.
A police team recovered the body from his bedroom.
Munde’s wife and son had been present when he was found.
A postmortem will be conducted on the body.
The RJD’s electoral alliance in the state is in chaos and the state has been rocked by several controversies.
Earlier this week, the RJD announced that it would no longer contest the 2019 general elections.
The party also decided to abandon the 2019 assembly polls.
