NEW DELHI: Family members of BSF constable Tej Bahadur Yadav, whose video claiming poor quality food being served to the jawans posted along the border had gone viral recently, met the paramilitary Director General KK Sharma here urging expeditious disposal of the pending enquiry against him.
Sharmila Yadav, wife of Constable Tej Bahadur and her brother Ranbir Singh met Sharma at the Force’s headquarters here. Sharma assured them that a “fair inquiry as per procedure” will be conducted in the case, officials said, adding the meeting comes after the family members sought a meeting with the paramilitary chief.
Yadav is facing a Court of Inquiry (CoI) for allegedly indulging in indiscipline by posting the video online in contravention of service conditions and bypassing proper channel.
A video shot by Yadav wearing battle fatigue had triggered a massive outrage leading the Prime Minister’s Office to step into the matter and asking Union Home Ministry to conduct a detailed enquiry. The Home Ministry had later clarified that there was no shortage of rations at any of the posts along the border.
