Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was detained for a second time by Delhi Police and taken to an undisclosed location after he tried to meet the family members of the ex-serviceman who allegedly committed suicide as high drama unfolded on streets in Lutyens’ Delhi with Congress and AAP workers staging protests.
 
Gandhi along with other Congress leaders, including Jyotiraditya Scindia and Ajay Maken were bundled into a police van and taken to a police station, sources said.
 
They, however, did not disclose where the Congress leaders were taken, reports Indian Express.
 
Earlier in the day, Gandhi was detained at the RML Hospital when he tried to meet the family members of ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal, who allegedly committed suicide last night over the One Rank-One Pension issue, and taken to Mandir Marg police station.
 
He was detained for around 70 minutes before being released.
 
Angry at being detained by Delhi Police, Gandhi took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “Let’s see how long I have to wait here. I am certain that I will talk to the family. This is a strange behaviour. This is Modi’s ji’s country,” he told ANI.
