New Delhi [India], Nov. 4(ANI): Nationalist Conmgress Party (NCP) leader Tariq Anwar on Friday said that ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal committed suicide because he was not treated right by the Centre.

Anwar Told ANI, "Grewal committed suicide because he felt that the behavior of the Modi government was not right with him. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had given such assurances earlier, then Grewal may not have committed suicide."
