Border Security Force officer, Tej Bahadur, who made headlines last year for his viral video regarding the poor quality of food served to Jawans, filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court to officially get his termination cancelled.

Taking cognizance of his plea, Justice P B Bajanthri on Tuesday issued a notice to the Union home ministry, BSF director-general K K Sharma and the commandant of BSF’s 29 battalion in which Yadav had served. The matter will come up for next hearing on May 28, as reported by The Times of India.

Bahadur who served in the military, however, said as reported by The Times of India that he made the video to show it to his immediate seniors ASI Gurdeep Singh, ASI Tej Pal Singh and the mess commander, Ct U Vasudeva Rao. He had no intention of putting the video on any public forum. However, his colleagues posted the video on Facebook from where it was taken up by many media houses. Yet, no action was taken by the officers in charge.


Background

Bahadur was posted in the Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir where he shot a video in January last year and alleged that the quality of food that is served to the paramilitary is sick to the extent that it cannot be eaten. The video spread on the internet like wildfire. People got furious. This led to many inquiries. As a result, the army set up an inquiry committee against Tej Bahadur and alleged that he had connections with the foreign power. On this pretext, the BSF jawan was terminated.

Tej Bahadur was to get voluntary retirement from January 31, 2017, as a result of his voluntary request submitted by him in the month of November 2016. However, his resignation was cancelled, and he was outrightly terminated from his services by the security force court.
