Mother of the BSF Jawan, Tej Bahadur Yadav, who’s video related to ill-treatment of soldiers by senior officials went viral two days ago, said that he has had problems related to food for long and had raised the issue for fellow soldiers earlier. She said that her son has made no mistake in the matter.
Tej Bahadur has been attached to another unit where he is now a plumber and the mess officer has been given a holiday. In the video, he accused senior officials in his cadre saying that they were “corrupt” and did not provide soldiers proper food. He said that if any voices were raised in the matter, their voices were suppressed. The Border Security Force jawan was accused of being mentally unstable by some officials. But Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh ordered an inquiry into the matter after the video went viral.
