Rohit, son of dismissed Border Security Force (BSF) Constable – Tej Bahadur Yadav, who had triggered outrage across the nation in 2017 after posting videos on quality of food given to soldiers, was found dead at his residence in Rewari, Haryana on Wednesday night.
According to the reports, the 22-year-old Rohit shot himself in his room.
“We had got a call that Rohit has committed suicide. Upon reaching the scene, we found the door bolted from inside and his body was lying on the bed… We have informed his father who is in Prayagraj right now to attend the Kumbh Mela,” a police officer said.
In 2017, Tej Bahadur had shared some video clips on social media about the quality of food being served to security forces posted in the frontier areas adjoining Pakistan. He was a BSF constable of 29 Battalion at Mandi Mandir headquarters and was posted at the administration base in Khet near Line of Control in Poonch district.
The jawan was dismissed from service by the Summary Security Force Court at Samba after he was found guilty of neglect to obey general orders of the force in which he carried two mobile phones while on operational duty against the SOP (standard operating procedure) and also posted his photographs in uniform on social media in contravention of instruction.
