Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav Dismissed by BSF After Video Went Viral

BSF trooper Tej Bahadur Yadav, who triggered a political uproar when his video clip on "sub-standard food" served to BSF men went viral in January, was dismissed from the service.

Yadav said he will approach the government and move the court if he fails to get justice. He has the option to appeal his dismissal, which came after a BSF court found him guilty of indiscipline, in a higher court within three months.

The video clip had triggered an uproar across the country, with the Prime Minister's Office and the Home Ministry seeking detailed reports from the Border Security Force (BSF).

"Yadav has been found guilty of all charges and awarded dismissal from service on Wednesday as per the provisions of the BSF Act and rules. Yadav has options to appeal to higher court against the verdict within three months," an SSFC statement said.
