Ex-soldier’s autopsy not conducted on Wednesday

New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) The post-mortem of the ex-soldier who committed suicide over implementation of OROP could not be done on Wednesday, hospital authorities said.

“The post-mortem could not be done today (Wednesday) as his family could not be contacted. We cannot say right now when it would be possible to perform the autopsy,” a senior official at Lady Hardinge Hospital told IANS.

The body of Subedar Ram Kishan Grewal (retired) was shifted from the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital to Lady Hardinge Hospital for the post-mortem on Wednesday morning.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal went to Lady Hardinge but was not allowed to enter the hospital.

Later, Kejriwal was detained and driven to the R.K. Puram police station in south Delhi along with fellow minister Gopal Rai.

Earlier, many political leaders, including Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, visited the RML Hospital to meet Grewal’s relatives.

Both Sisodia and Gandhi were detained but later released.
