Whistle blower BSF jawan dismissed after thorough inquiry
KT NEWS SERVICE
JAMMU, Apr 19: The Border Security Force (BSF) Wednesday dismissed a soldier from service after an internal inquiry found him guilty of making false accusations and neglecting orders of the force.

BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav had earlier hogged headlines soon after he posted series of videos on Facebook complaining about the poor food at a camp along the India-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir in January.

Bahadur was deployed with the force’s 29th battalion at the time allegations were made and had been transferred to a BSF battalion in Jammu during the inquiry.

He had alleged troops were served bad quality food and even had to sleep “empty stomach” at times, prompting the border guarding force to initiate an inquiry.

The BSF said in a statement that Yadav was dismissed from service by the Summary Security Force Court (SSFC) that commenced from April 13 and concluded on April 19.

“During the proceedings, it was charged that he indulged in an act prejudicial to good order and discipline of the force in which he made false allegations on social media regarding the quality of food and did not adhere to formal grievance redressal mechanism of the force,” the statement said.

It added that all opportunities were given to Yadav for his defence during the proceedings.

“It was also alleged in the court of inquiry that he neglected to obey general orders of the force in which he carried two mobile phones while on operational duty against the SOP and also posted photographs in uniform on social media in contravention of instructions,” it said.

He was found guilty of all the charges and awarded dismissal from service. As per BSF act and rules, he can now submit an appeal against the punishment to the higher authorities within 3 months.

During the court of inquiry, Yadav’s colleagues did not support his claim of sub-standard food at the camps.

Yadav, in January this year, had alleged in his video post that bad quality food was being served to the soldiers.

While the government procures essentials for the soldiers, the higher-ups “sell them off” in an “illegal” manner in the market making the lower level personnel in the force suffer, he had alleged.

He had also said in the video that a watery soup-like dal, which he claimed had only turmeric and salt, and a burnt chapati were served to them.
