One Rank One Pension – Dejected ex-serviceman Commits suicide

NOVEMBER 2, 2016 BY PRAKASH MALANKAR

One Rank One Pension – Dejected ex-serviceman Commits suicide. An ex-serviceman protesting against the delay in implementing the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme allegedly committed suicide in New Delhi late Tuesday night. Identified as Ram Kishen Grewal, the former army jawan purportedly left a suicide note saying that he is taking his life due to the delay in implementing OROP.

He is reported to have consumed poison in the lawns behind Jawahar Bhawan. Police told PTI that he, along with some other ex-servicemen, was in the process of submitting a memorandum to the Defence Ministry over the issue of OROP. According to his friends, Grewal had been upset over the issue for sometime. Garehwal’s son told news agency ANI that his father had called them and informed about his decision to commit suicide because the ‘government had failed’ to fulfill their demands related to OROP.
