REWARI (HARYANA): Dismissed BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav is planning to move court against his sacking as he contended today that he was not given a fair trial after he complained about poor quality of food being served to the soldiers.
Yadav, a native of Rewari in Haryana, had posted a video online about five months back, complaining about poor quality food being served to the troops on the icy heights along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.
He was dismissed yesterday by a Summary Security Force Court (SSFC) where he was tried on two counts — of making “false allegations” on social media regarding the quality of food and carrying two mobile phones while on operational duty, the BSF spokesman said.
“I was not given a fair trial. Though I was given an opportunity to present witness but my mobile phone was seized. I wanted to call colleagues as witnesses, but wasn’t allowed to do so,” Yadav said today after returning to his village here from Jammu and Kashmir.
He said he was shocked to know about his dismissal after being earlier asked to prepare pension and retirement documents
