The Border Security Force (BSF) today sacked constable Tej Bahadur Yadav after a three-month long proceeding at a summary court martial held in Jammu and Kashmir’s Samba district.
Bahadur’s dismissal came after a court of inquiry found that he had damaged the “image of the BSF” when he uploaded a video clip on the “substandard food” on social media, triggering an uproar.
The trooper was facing the inquiry on various charges, including indiscipline. His plea for voluntary retirement was also rejected by the BSF authorities.
On January 9 this year, the BSF constable had uploaded the video, complaining about the “poor quality of food” provided to the troopers.
