Will hear plea to trace ‘missing’ BSF jawan: HC


New Delhi:
Delhi HC agrees to hear today a plea seeking to trace ‘missing’ BSF jawan, who posted video alleging that poor quality food was served to them.

Tej Bahadur Yadav – the BSF constable whose Facebook video about the food served at the Line of Control had created a storm last month – is allegedly missing. His family has filed a petition in High Court, saying they have no idea of his whereabouts. The family claims they have sent two letters to the Border Security Force Director General to know where Yadav is, but received no reply.

Media quoted his brother-in-law saying that Yadav’s wife talked to him last on February 7. We have been calling him on his mobile number but it goes unanswered,” Vijay said. “When we contact on his official phone number, nobody tells us about his location or they put our phone calls on hold.”

Yadav’s family had earlier alleged that he was being threatened and mentally tortured. Yadav’s wife Sharmila has sought a high-level inquiry into his disappearance and the recent rejection of his plea for voluntary retirement.
