The Union Home Ministry has asked BSF to submit a fact report by today in the case involving a jawan, who claimed poor quality food was being served to soldiers on the LoC, whose social media video posts have prompted authorities to initiate action into the allegations.
Officials said the Border Security Force (BSF) headquarters here has already submitted a preliminary report in the case to the Home Ministry on Tuesday and a full report is being prepared by a Deputy Inspector General (DIG)-rank officer who is based in Jammu and Kashmir. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had also taken note of the video on Monday and ordered an “appropriate action” into the incident.
“I have seen a video regarding a BSF jawan’s plight. I have asked the HS (Home Secretary) to immediately seek a report from the BSF & take appropriate action,” Singh had tweeted.Earlier in the day, BSF said the constable, Tej Bahadur Yadav of the 29th battalion, who posted these videos was court-martialed in 2010 for indiscipline and aiming a gun at a senior officer even as it assured of a thorough probe into his allegations.
