However, after few hours of it, the BSF stated that a DIG rank officer had reached location to investigate the circumstances alleged in videos. Meanwhile, it also stated about the background of the soldier saying that he had a difficult past and from his initial days, he needed regular counselling.

The BSF statement further stated him undisciplined as it mentioned that the soldier was “habitual offender of absenteeism without permission, chronic alcoholism and misbehaving with superior officers.” It added that for such reasons, individual had served mostly in headquarters under supervision of some dedicated superior officer.

Amid all the hubbub, the video reached to the Home Minister Rajnath Singh who has ordered a probe into the matter.
