An ex-serviceman committed suicide allegedly over complaints with the OROP scheme.
BHIWANI, HARYANA: A retired Armyman has allegedly committed suicide at his home in Haryana after he was denied permission to meet Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar with his complaint over the government's One Rank One Pension or OROP scheme.
Subedar Ram Kishen Grewal, who had protested at Delhi's Jantar Mantar demanding changes in OROP, allegedly consumed poison and left behind a suicide note. He belonged to Bhiwani in Haryana.
"He called us and said he is committing suicide as the government has failed to fulfil their demands related to OROP," Subedar Grewal's son, Ram Kishan Grewal told news agency ANI.
