Row over food: Spouse moves HC claiming BSF jawan is missing
The wife of a BSF jawan, who went public through the social media alleging poor quality food being served to soldiers, on Thursday filed a habeas corpus plea in the Delhi High Court claiming that her husband is untraceable and the family has been unable to contact him for last three days.
She has sought a high-level inquiry into his disappearance as well as the recent rejection of his plea for voluntary retirement.
BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav had on January 9 posted a video on Facebook which showed a meal box comprising a watery soup-like dal, which he said had only turmeric and salt and a burnt chapatti.
Pursuant to the video going viral, the Prime Minister's Office had sought a detailed factual report on it from the Union Home Ministry and BSF.
