In 2017, Tej Bahadur had shared some video clips criticising the quality of food being served to security forces posted in the frontier areas adjoining Pakistan. He served as a BSF constable of 29 Battalion at Mandi Mandir headquarters and was posted at the administration base in Khet near Line of Control in Poonch district.
The former soldier was dismissed from the service by the Summary Security Force Court at Samba. He was found guilty of neglect to obey general orders of the BSF in which he carried two mobile phones while on operational duty against the standard operating procedure. He also posted his photographs in uniform on social media in contravention of instruction.
