Ram Kishan Grewal a 'martyr' or not? Delhi HC to pronounce order on December 12
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday adjourned the matter on petition challenging the Rs 1 crore compensation and status of martyr given to late Ram Kishan Grewal by Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government.
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday adjourned the matter on petitions challenging the Rs 1 crore compensation and status of martyr given to late Ram Kishan Grewal by Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government.
The HC bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal will pronounce the order on December 12, 2016.
Two separate pleas have been filed in Delhi HC challenging the Aam Aadmi Party government's decision to give Rs one crore compensation and a job to the family of ex-armyman Ram Kishan Grewal, who recently committed suicide here allegedly over grievances on One Rank One Pension (OROP) issue.
One of the public interest litigation (PILs) filed by advocate Avadh Kaushik has opposed the AAP government's decision to declare Grewal a 'martyr'.
The petitioner alleged in the court that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should not have "glorified" this act of committing suicide.
Retired Army Subedar Grewal had allegedly committed suicide over the OROP issue on November 1.
The alleged suicide of Grewal had snowballed into a huge political showdown in the capital with Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal vehemently blaming Modi government for the unfortunate incident.
