In the wake of the complaint about poor food posted on social media, Border Security Forces (BSF) jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav was on Wednesday dismissed from the service.
“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 was quoted as saying by a news agency.
“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.
Bahadur's dismissal came after a court of inquiry found that he had damaged the image of the BSF when he uploaded the video clip on social media.
Earlier in January, Yadav had landed in controversy when he posted a video on social media, complaining about the poor quality of food being served to jawans.
In another video, Yadav had alleged that he is being mentally tortured and that his attempt to post the first video was to bring to light the alleged prevailing corruption in his organisation.
