"Waited for him on 31st but he didn't come. He called up to say that he was asked to retire. He further said that his retirement was also cancelled within one hour and that he was later arrested. He managed to call up today using someone else's phone, told me that he's under arrest, being threatened and mentally tortured," Sharmila Yadav, wife of Tej Bahadur Yadav, told ANI on Thursday.
However, BSF sources said that Yadav has not been arrested but an inquiry has found him guilty. Also disciplinary action against him is recommended but not approved yet.
A video shot by Yadav had surfaced earlier this month where the jawan complained about the quality of food being given to troops posted along the border. Soon, after the video went viral, it triggered a flurry of reactions with the PMO also seeking a detailed factual report on the incident.
