‘I Hope That I Will Get Justice’: Sacked BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur

BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, who had posted a video online complaining about poor quality food being served to the troops on icy heights along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir, has been dismissed on charge of indiscipline.

Hours after the dismissal, Yadav said he will now appeal in the High Court. “Hope I get justice. I have full faith in the judiciary. This is what happens when you say the truth. This has been happening for years now,” Yadav said

A spokesman for the BSF said constable Yadav was "was found guilty of all the charges and awarded dismissal from service."

The order comes five months after he posted the video on Facebook, triggering public outcry over the working conditions of troops guarding the country's frontiers.

The BSF had conducted a Summary Security Force Court (SSFC) where Yadav was tried on two counts of making "false allegations" on social media regarding the quality of food, and carrying two mobile phones while on operational duty, the spokesman said.
