BSF jawan who complained of bad food sacked
A BSF jawan, who posted a clip on social media complaining of bad quality food being served to the troops, was on Wednesday dismissed from service following an inquiry.
Officials said Tej Bahadur Yadav was sacked by the border guarding force on the basis of a report of a staff court of inquiry (SCoI).
The inquiry, they said, found the constable-rank jawan guilty of making false charges.
"The action of dismissal of the jawan has been taken under the Border Security Force Act that is applicable to all the personnel serving in the paramilitary force," a senior officer said.
"Yadav has been found guilty on certain charges of indiscipline including uploading the said video in violation of laid down procedures and rules. He has an option to appeal against the verdict within three months time," he added.
Yadav, in January this year, had alleged in his video post that bad quality food was being served to the soldiers.
