The wife of Tej Bahadur Yadav will be allowed to meet him over the weekend at the Samba sector in Jammu and Kashmir. The order was passed by the Delhi high court. It may be recalled that Yadav had posted a video online complaining about the poor quality of food served to jawans.
Yadav's wife Sharmila had filed a habeas corpus petition alleging that her husband was missing ever since the video that he posted went viral. During the course of the hearing, the union Home Ministry told the court that Yadav was not arrested as is being alleged. He has only been shifted to another battalion, the ministry also told the court.
Yadav's wife Sharmila sought a directive from the Delhi high court to the authorities concerned to produce her husband before the court. The court will hear the matter on Friday.
Sharmila says in the petition that an inquiry had been ordered after he had uploaded the video. Since then none of us have been able to contact him, she also alleged. She even said that she had written two letters to the BSF, but there was no response. They avoid my phone calls and very often keep the call on hold, she also alleged.
