Srinagar: Refuting the allegations levelled by soldier Tej Bahadur in a video message, the Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday accused the latter of indulging in indiscipline act and added that it is a sensitive matter for the forces.
“He indulged in action of indiscipline and he was to be court-martialed in 2010; considering his family he wasn’t dismissed. It is a sensitive matter for us, we will probe it and take actions accordingly. Can’t comment on the allegations as yet, enquiry has been ordered. If any lapses found then strict action will be taken,” ANI quoted Inspector General, BSF, D.K. Upadhyay saying.
Contrary to charges made by Bahadur, Upadhyay added that DIG level officers who have visited the camp in past, have never received any complaint regarding allegations levelled in the video.
“I can agree that taste of the food might not be very great but have never received any complaint from jawans regarding the same,” he said.
Within hours of the Facebook video addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi going viral, in which BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur narrated the hardships he faced every day on the Line of Control (LoC), his superiors at Border Security Force (BSF) released a statement in which they accused the soldier of being a frequent discipline breaker.
