BSF rejects VRS application of constable Tej Bahadur Yadav

Tej Bahadur Yadav, the BSF jawan who had gone viral on Facebook after shooting a video showing the bad and unhygienic conditions that jawans have to endure has been allegedly arrested, according to his wife, Sharmila Bahadur.

However, the sources in BSF said, "Yadav was not under arrest and his application for voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) has been cancelled pending the COI (Court of Inquiry) and finalisation of its recommendations". BSF also said that "cancellation of VRS was communicated to Tej Bahadur on 30th Jan 2017 evening only".

Sharmila Yadav, also alleged that the jawan was asked to retire from the force.

She had claimed he used someone's phone to call her and tell her that he was being threatened.

"Waited for him on January 31, but he didn't come". An investigation was initiated by Home Ministry to confirm if the claims made by the BSF jawan were true. "While disciplinary action against him has been recommended, it has not been approved yet", they 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.

Tej Bahadur also posted other videos showing a poorly baked "chapati" and dal which he said had "nothing except salt and turmeric".

She further claimed that the retirement was cancelled with in an hour, post which the jawan was arrested. His request for voluntary retirement was rejected, it said, as an inquiry against him is pending.

Last year, after making the revelation, Tej Bahadur had submitted a plea for early retirement which was accepted by the Army and he was allowed to retire on January 31.

The BSF constable's social media post had triggered a controversy.
