Jan 10, 2017- Union Home minister Rajnath Singh has ordered an inquiry into a BSF soldier’s videos alleging poor food and near starvation in the bitterly cold frontlines of Jammu and Kashmir.

Contrary to this, the BSF released a statement accusing the soldier of being an "alcoholic and a habitual offender".  The soldier has been shifted from the Line of Control to the headquarters of his 29 battalion in Poonch.

The BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, in a video posted on Facebook, alleged that troops were being treated with "cruelty" because they were being served bad quality food and even slept on "empty stomach" at times. In one of the videos, Tej Bahadur Yadav films dinner being cooked in semi-darkness.

In another, the 40-year-old, in his fatigues and carrying a rifle, says: "This is the quality of the food we get... we are on duty for 11 hours in the snow and at times we have to stand throughout... how can a jawan do his duty? " Often, he claims, jawans go to bed on an empty stomach.
