New Delhi, Nov 3: After being detained by the Delhi Police for trying to meet the family members of army veteran Ram Kishan Grewal, who allegedly committed suicide on Wednesday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi are going to attend the ex-serviceman's funeral in Haryana on Thursday.

The suicide by Grewal over One Rank One Pension (OROP) snowballed into a huge political show with Gandhi, Kejriwal and other opposition leaders being detained by the Delhi police.
