Earlier in the day, the Ministry of Home Affairs told the Delhi High Court that the BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav is not under arrest but in fact has been shifted to another battalion. The Delhi High Court today agreed to hear habeas corpus plea on missing Border Security Force (BSF) soldier who had alleged bad-quality food for soldiers. Also as per the High Court orders today, BSF jawan Tej Bahadur’s wife Sharmila will be allowed to meet him over the weekend in Samba (Jammu and Kashmir). The next hearing is scheduled for February 15.
A habeas corpus is a provision in the law requiring a person under arrest or detention to be brought before a judge or court, on the fear of the individual’s safety. The plea was filed by jawan’s wife after she and her family members failed to reach Tej Bahadur Yadav for three days.
In January Yadav posted a video clip on a social media website complaining about the substandard quality of food that was served to security personnel and accused unnamed officers of illegally selling food supplies meant for troopers.

The video went viral, triggering a flurry of reactions with the PMO also seeking a detailed factual report on it from the Union Home Ministry and BSF. Yadav had claimed that while the government procures essentials for them, the higher-ups and officers ‘sell these off’ in an ‘illegal’ manner in the market and the personnel have to suffer. He had also posted other videos in which he had claimed that the quality of food served was not good.
