Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will also visit Bhiwani to meet the ex-serviceman's family.
This comes a day after Rahul Gandhi was detained by the Delhi police and was not allowed to meet Grewal's family members. He was stopped close to the gates of the Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital and then taken to the Mandir Marg Police station.
Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and CM Arvind Kejriwal were also detained by the police and released around midnight.
A political storm erupted over the development, as parties were making a beeline to meet the victim's family and were facing massive resistance from the Delhi Police, who were carting away the leaders in droves.
70-year-old ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal committed suicide by consuming poison at a park in New Delhi over the delay of implementation of the OROP scheme.
