Srinagar: Weeks after BSF soldier Tej Bahadur posted a video alleging that troops were being served bad quality food, his wife Sharmila Yadav in a shocking revelation has reportedly said that her husband was forced to retire and added that he was later put under arrest.
Media reports quoting Sharmila said that Yadav was being mentally tortured.
“I waited for him on 31st, but he didn’t come. He called around 8 that he is not coming and that he was asked to retire. He further said that his retirement was also cancelled within one hour and that he was later arrested,” reports quoting her said.
She further said that her husband managed to call up using someone else’s phone and said that he was under arrest and being threatened and mentally tortured.
Meanwhile, the BSF as per reports has said that Tej Bahadur was not arrested and an inquiry has found him guilty and disciplinary action against him was recommended, which is yet to be approved.
Yadav’s video alleging that sub-standard food was served to soldiers on the frontlines went viral and sparked a nationwide outrage.
Tej Bahadur also posted other videos showing a poorly baked ‘chapati’ and dal which he said had “nothing except salt and turmeric”. (Agencies)
