Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi was again detained on Wednesday hours after his release from detention. He has been sent to Mandir Marg police station.

Earlier, he was detained at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital where he had gone to meet the family of the ex-serviceman, Ram Kishan Garehwal, who allegedly committed suicide over OROP issue. He was later released.

"Naya Hindustan ban raha hai bhaiya," said Rahul Gandhi after not being allowed to meet the family of Ram Kishan Garehwal at RML Hospital.

"It's hospital and not place for demonstration. Rahul Gandhi detained for trying to enter hospital despite being advised otherwise. Rahul Gandhi detained at Mandir Marg PS for 'disruption of duty' after he wasn't allowed to enter RML hospital to meet ex-serviceman's family. Family members detained as well as they are contacting political leaders and holding demonstration here. No politician is allowed in the hospital and they were causing disturbances," said Delhi Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) chief MK Meena.

Angry Rahul Takes On Cops, Video Goes Viral

"You have no shame?" Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi asked a police officer for detaining the family of a retired soldier who committed suicide. Rahul lashed out at Delhi Police for keeping the family of Ram Kishan Garehwal under custody.

Seated on a chair at the Mandir Marg police station, Gandhi threw the question at a visibly uncomfortable police officer who was trying to explain the reason why the Congress leader had been detained after he tried to meet the family of ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal.

Gandhi asked the officer if the police did not feel ashamed to detain Grewal's family, which alleged that they were manhandled by policemen at the hospital before being brought to the same police station.

"If you can arrest a veteran's family, arrest me also," Gandhi said. "How can you arrest a veteran's kin?"

At a later stage, Gandhi told the officer to "at least let the veteran's family go".

Arvind Kejriwal Accuses Modi Government Of 'Goondagardi'

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was also detained after he reached the hospital to meet the family of ex serviceman, Ram Kishan Garehwal.

Terming this act as 'gundagardi', Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and termed it his insecurity.

"The central government is intent on goondagirdi," a visibly angry Kejriwal told journalists.

"I am the Chief Minister of Delhi. An ex-serviceman has committed suicide. Is it not my duty to meet the grieving family?" Kejriwal asked.

The Aam Aadmi Party leader said he was determined to meet the family members of Grewal who themselves had been detained at a police station.

Also detained was Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. He had gone to Ram Manohar Lohia hospital to meet the family of 70-year-old ex-serviceman Grewal.

This followed after a minor scuffle broke out at the RML hospital as Sisodia and AAP lawmaker Commander Surinder Singh tried to enter the hospital premises. The police said their presence was disturbing hospital work.

Defending the hospital visit, Congress leader PC Chacko said that it was the "duty" of the Congress vice president to visit the hospital to meet the grieving family.

"Wherever there is a problem, he can go. It is his duty. He is doing it in all sincerity," Chacko said.

Pointing out that OROP was cleared by the Congress-led UPA government and there was a huge delay in its implementation by the Narendra Modi government, Chacko said, "Is it for BJP to decide where Rahul Gandhi will go?"

Congress Protests Rahul Gandhi's Detention

Congress workers have protested outside Mandir Marg Police Station where Rahul Gandhi has been detained. Congress' Randeep Surjewala and Kiran Choudhary also detained.

"Police used force against family members who were dragged on the ground and beaten up," said Anand Sharma.

"The way government is working since day 1 is anti-democratic, this is a well thought conspiracy to stop Rahul Gandhi wherever he goes," senior party leader Ahmed Patel commented.

BJP Criticises Rahul For 'Politicising' Ex-Serviceman's Suicide

The BJP criticised Rahul Gandhi for "doing politics" over the suicide by an ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal, even as the Congress defended it as his duty to meet the bereaved family.

Criticising Rahul Gandhi for going to RML Hospital to meet the relatives of Grewal, the BJP spokesman Nalin Kohli said that "there is a time and place for everything". The BJP spokesman asked in how many other cases had Gandhi made similar visits. He described Gandhi's action as "unfortunate".

Meanwhile, Union Minister General VK Singh attacked Rahul Gandhi and said that the OROP should be kept away from politics and Gandhi should not politicise it. "Reason for his suicide being reported is OROP. I don't know what his mental state was and we need investigation," he said over ex-serviceman's suicide.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh later tried to evade the question on Rahul Gandhi's detention and said, "I don't have anything to say. Police will do what it has to for risk reduction."

Police Takes Ex-Serviceman's Son In Custody

Delhi Police took into custody the son of a former army man who committed suicide demanding implementation of OROP.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia confirmed the incident through his Twitter account.

"Delhi Police has taken ex-serviceman Ram Kishan's son in its custody after putting him in a vehicle," Sisodia tweeted.

Ex-Soldier's Body Shifted To Lady Hardinge Hospital

Authorities shifted the body of a former army man who committed suicide over OROP to Lady Hardinge hospital for the post-mortem, officials said.

The body of Ram Kishan Grewal was earlier kept at the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital, where a large number of politicians gathered on Wednesday to meet the dead man's relatives.

Reacting to the rush of political leaders at the RML, Medical Superintendent of RML Hospital AK Gadpayle said that hospital functioning was being affected.

"I cannot understand why there is so much police in the hospital, and why so many people are coming here since morning. This is obstructing us from performing our duties," he told reporters.

Gadpayle added that the family of Grewal had also been informed that the body has been shifted to Lady Hardinge.

RML spokesperson VK Sinha said that Grewal's body was brought to the hospital at 1 am on Wednesday and was shifted to Lady Hardinge at 5.30 am for the postmortem.
