Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was prevented by the Delhi Police this evening from driving from the Lady Hardinge Hospital to the Connaught Place police station. He was not allowed to leave hospital premises to meet with relative of a former armyman who committed suicide. Subedar Ram Kishan Grewal drank poison at a government building yesterday; the 65-year-old died late last night.

He allegedly left a voice message for his son, Jaswant Grewal, in which he complained of the sacrifices of soldiers not being respected by the government which he accused of reneging on a promise to equalize pensions under a scheme called OROP (One Rank One Pension).

Mr Kejriwal's Deputy, Manish Sisodia, was detained by the police this afternoon to prevent him from entering the hospital where Subedar Grewal's body was kept. Similar action was taken twice against Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who was taken twice to police stations in the capital.

The Chief Minister asked "Am I armed, do I have a gun?" he said he wanted to meet Subedar Grewal's son who was at a police station hours after he protested outside the hospital where his father's body was kept. The politician said the former serviceman's son had complained on the phone that he was being "manhandled".
