BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, who took to social media complaining about the poor quality of food served in his regiment, was on Wednesday dismissed from service after an internal inquiry found him guilty of making false accusations against his superiors.

“The action of dismissal of the jawan has been taken under the Border Security Force Act that is applicable to all the personnel serving in the paramilitary force,” a senior officer told news agency PTI.

“Yadav has been found guilty on certain charges of indiscipline including uploading the said video in violation of laid down procedures and rules. He has an option to appeal against the verdict within three months time,” he added.

On January 9, yadav posted two videos on Facebook alleging that the jawans posted in Kashmir were being served substandard food. In one of the videos he expressed fear of repercussions from his seniors officials for complaining about the food. He also alleged that a few of them have been siphoning off food supplies meant for the jawans. His videos caused a furore, drawing sharp reactions from the opposition parties and the public alike.

Yadav was facing charges of indiscipline among several others. His plea for voluntary retirement from service was dismissed by the BSF. His family members had claimed that Yadav was being tortured and harassed. Yadav was serving in the 80 battalion of the force and had been transferred to a BSF battalion in Jammu during the inquiry.

      Every whistle-blower meets the same fate in India. the quality of food shown in the video was truly poor. do they serve the same quality food in the Parliament to the politicians? do the officer rank army personnel eat same food ?why the difference in the diet? Jawan apni jaan pe khel ke desh ki seva karte hain... desh unhe do waqt ka acha khana bhi nahi de sakta????
