Jawan Tej Bahadur Is Alive, Death A Hoax: BSF Refutes Rumours


New Delhi: Border Security Force (BSF) constable Tej Bahadur, whose video complaining about poor quality of food being served to jawans went viral has again hit the news, but for the reports of his fake death.

On Wednesday, social media stirred with reports of Tej Bahadur being killed for blowing the whistle off on BSF’s code of conduct.

A photo collage put up on Twitter and Facebook by Pakistan nationals, comprising Bahadur’s picture from his video and a dead lookalike with his face covered and smeared with blood, sent a flutter among netizens all over.

However, BSF rubbished the rumour, adding that Tej Bahadur is hale and hearty and posted in Jammu-Kashmir. Soon after, his wife too quelled the rumors.

In his video shot in January, he had alleged that besides comprising on food quality, senior officers siphoned off ration money meant for soldiers at the border.
