Indian BSF soldier stands by corruption complaint despite mounting pressure

Shares

Indian BSF jawan who has exposed corruption in Indian security forces remained subserviant, claiming he had surpassed legendary revolutionary Bhagat Singh in exposing corruption in the forces.

"Jo bomb Bhagat Singh ne nahi phoda. woh maine phod diya aur ab main peechce nahi hatunga (I have done what Bhagat Singh didn't. Now I won't back down)," Yadav said in a 2.15-minute audio clip today. "If this benefits thousands of others (jawans), then I won't back down. It's not a big deal if somebody gets something from my sacrifice," Yadav said, referring to the disciplinary action he might have to face after his Facebook post went viral across social media.

In the audio clip, uploaded by a news organization on its website, Tej Bahadur said he has no faith in a BSF inquiry and said his allegations "should be investigated by CBI or NIA".

Tej Bahadur Yadav’s family said today the issues raised by him in Facebook videos were true.

Tej Bahadur’s wife, Sharmila, rubbished Border Security Force’s claims, which said a day ago that the soldier had issues with intoxication and discipline.
