BSF dismisses jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav who complained of ‘sub-standard’ food

New Delhi, April 19 (Only Kashmir):  The Border Security Force has dismissed the jawan who had complained about the sub-standard food being served to the jawans.

BSF sources say that it has found Tej Bahadur Yadav guilty on certain charges of indiscipline. He has been dismissed from service as per the provisions of BSF act and rule.

Yadav had created a storm earlier this year by posting videos on social media showing that jawans posted on the border were being served low quality food, which BSF had denied.

Pursuant to the video going viral on social media, the Prime Minister’s Office had sought a detailed factual report on it from the Union home ministry and BSF.

A PIL was also filed in the Delhi high court seeking a direction to the government to depute higher officers to supervise cooking of proper healthy food and its distribution. It sought a status report regarding the quality of food served to soldiers along the LoC.

It had also directed BSF to produce before it the investigation report and the steps taken with regard to the allegations levelled by the BSF jawan.
