He created a furore across the nation after he posted a video on his Facebook account complaining about the poor quality of food served to jawans in the Border Security Force. Tej Bahadur Yadav was shifted to a different regiment and his wife had to move the Delhi high court seeking to know about his whereabouts.
While the Delhi HC ordered that the wife be able to meet her husband, the Home ministry is now scanning his Pakistani friends on his Facebook account. Intelligence Bureau officials are scanning his Facebook account and have found that at least 17 per cent of his friends are from Pakistan. "It is just an observation and we are not trying to suggest anything," said an official probing the case.
Officials are scanning his account and also conversations that Yadav may have had with his Facebook friends from Pakistan. The officials have also found multiple Facebook accounts and investigators are trying to ascertain the authenticity of the same.
On Friday Yadav's wife had told the Delhi high court that she has not been able to contact her husband since he posted the video on January 9. She said that officials were not cooperating with her request and neither had they allowed to speak with him.
The court was told by the Home mxinistry that he has not been arrested, but shifted to another regiment. The court then directed the government to let the wife meet Yadav over the weekend.
