"BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur being tortured mentally and threatened" - Bahadur's Wife Reveals

Border Security Force jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, who posted a Facebook video complaining about the awful conditions jawans have to endure, has reportedly been arrested, his wife Sharmila Bahadur alleged on Thursday.

Tej Bahadur, who claimed to be from the 29th battalion of the Border Security Force in Jammu and Kashmir, had in a series of videos said that the government has been doing enough to provide the security forces with essential items, but it is the BSF officials who are indulged in the wrong doings.

Yadav's wife Sharmila said that her husband was supposed to come back home on January 31, but failed to turn up.

Yadav's wife reportedly claimed that her husband had called her on Thursday morning and claimed he was being threatened and harassed and that he has been put under arrest. The entire controversy had started after Tej Bahadur Yadav had shared the alleged videos of the substandard means and unhygienic means of the lives the soldiers have to live at the border. She said that after the cancellation of the VRS, he was arrested. "He managed to call up today using someone else's phone, told me that he's under arrest, being threatened and mentally tortured", his wife told ANI. "While disciplinary action against him has been recommended, it has not been approved yet", they said.

"Categorically stated that TBY (Tej Bahadur Yadav) has not been arrested". The inquiry has found him guilty.

Last year, after making the revelation, Tej Bahadur had submitted a plea for early retirement which was accepted by the Army and he was allowed to retire on January 31.

Yadav's outburst has caused a storm on social media with many coming forward to express their support.
