Family Unaware of Soldier Tej Bahadur’s Whereabouts or Condition: On Wednesday, the BSF Jawan’s family Tej Bahadur’s wife Sharmila rubbished the claims that the BSF Jawan was mentally unstable. She reiterated his claims to expose corruption in the higher order saying he said the truth. She said that if the BSF felt he was mentally unfit then she questioned why he was sent to the border. She said, “What my husband did is right and for the welfare of the soldiers. It is not wrong to demand food. He has only shown the truth, but these people are saying his mental health is not well. If he was mentally unstable, why was he sent to the border?”

On Tuesday, she claimed in a facebook post that the family could not contact him since Monday. They do not know about his whereabouts or his condition. Sharmila urged the government to investigate the matter and make sure that her husband and family get justice. The BSF Jawan’s son also Rohit supported his father in his demand for good food. He expressed his inclination into investigating the matter.
He said, “We have been unable to contact him since last evening. We last spoke to him yesterday evening. We don’t know where has he been kept and in what circumstances. He just demanded good food, which is not wrong. We want to know what is happening with him and if he is fine. I want this matter to be investigated and wish he gets justice.”
On Monday the video in which BSF jawan Tej Badur spoke about the deep corruption in the higher order went viral. In the video, Tej Bahadur expressed how troops do not even receive basic three square meals. He exposed the rot in the system. The soldiers are treated in a horrible condition though they stand for 11 hours daily in all extreme weather. “Neither the media nor any minister tries to take a note on how are we going through this ……… everything (for their own profit),” another jawan was seen saying. On Tuesday, however, the Border Security Force refuted the allegations of the soldier and said this is a sensitive issue for the forces.
