VRS plea of food protester constable cancelled: BSF

The Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) plea was turned down on the grounds that a Court of Inquiry on Tej Bahadur Yadav's allegations is pending as also the charges on disciplinary grounds against him, said officials. BSF also said that "cancellation of VRS was communicated to Tej Bahadur on 30th Jan 2017 evening only". Sharmila Yadav, speaking to ANI, said that she had waited for her husband's arrival on January 31 but he did not turn up.

She claimed that her husband had called her on Thursday morning and claimed that he was being threatened and harassed and that he had been put under arrest. It had triggered a flurry of reactions with the PMO seeking a detailed report on it from the Home Ministry and BSF. "He further said that his retirement was also cancelled within one hour and that he was later arrested", she said.

"He managed to call up today using someone else's phone and told me that he's under arrest, being threatened & mentally tortured", Sharmila Bahadur told news agency ANI.

Tej Bahadur Yadav, a soldier of Indian Army, who exposed the corruption in the army, went missing, his wife claimed. The inquiry has found him guilty.
