New Delhi, March 3: BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav is back with another video. After complaining about the poor quality of food in a previous video that went viral, the jawan has now appealed to the prime minister for support. The new video, which was released five days ago, shows Yadav speaking about how he was tortured mentally as he exposed corruption.
The video was shot at a Jammu guest house when he met with his wife following a directive by the Delhi high court. The meeting had taken place in the second week of February.
In the video he says his phone had been taken away and may have been tampered with. He is seen clarifying about the Pakistan friends. It was said during a probe into his video that several friends from Pakistan on his social media account are under the scanner. However, Yadav says that his phone had been tampered with after it was taken away.
He also complains that his voluntary retirement application had been cancelled. "Please do not believe any rumours. Only trust what I am saying when I put out a video," he also goes on to say.
A Home ministry official said that this amounts to gross misconduct. "His phone had been taken away as part of the inquiry. His wife may have presented him with a new one when she met him. On the allegations of his voluntary retirement application being cancelled, the official said that this was because an inquiry is underway," officials said.
Officials are looking into the possibility of a professional behind the making of the video. "The video has been edited and captioned and hence we suspect that there could be a professional behind it. An investigation in this regard is on," the official noted.
