Orop suicide: Delhi Police team in Bhiwani to meet Ram Kishan Grewal's family members

New Delhi: A Delhi Police team has been sent to ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal's home town Bhiwani in Haryana today to meet his family members, a day after his suicide case was handed over to the Crime Branch.

"A team has been sent to Bhiwani to talk to Grewal's family members. However, the team is still waiting to talk to them since they have been surrounded by media and politicians. They have shared all the details with the media but we still need to talk to them," said a senior police officer privy to the probe.

On Thursday, the case was transferred from New Delhi district to Crime Branch keeping in mind the sensitivity of
the matter and the fact that the district police is busy with law and order duties in the area.

The Crime Branch team led by DCP(Crime) Bhisham Singh is conducting inquest proceedings in the matter.

Grewal, along with three of his companions, had come to the city apparently to submit a memorandum to the defence
ministry over the issue of OROP.

The 70-year-old ex-serviceman had consumed poison in the lawns behind Jawahar Bhavan, which houses some offices of the Ministry of External Affairs, on 1 November. He was rushed to RML Hospital where he died later.

The officer said that they are still searching for the three men who were accompanying him when he took the extreme step.

Police have procured the suicide note and the audio recording of Grewal's last conversation with his son from
media persons as the family members haven't shared any details with the police yet, he said.

Grewal's suicide had snowballed into a huge political showdown on Wednesday in the capital with Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi being detained twice by Delhi Police amid high drama and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also being detained by the policemen.
