The wife of a BSF soldier saying that her husband has gone incommunicado and nobody could tell his whereabouts, has approached the Delhi high court on Thursday.
Soldier Tej Bahadur Yadav’s wife Sharmila said she was worried about his safety because she has not been in touch with him for the past three days. She requested that her husband be produced before the court.
Sharmila lives with the couple’s son in Haryana’s Rewari. She alleged earlier this month that her husband has been detained by the BSF.
Showing unpalatable food at his camp along the Indo-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir, Yadav posted four videos on social media in January. BSF dismissed his allegations that officers sold on the sly ration for troops.
Sharmila’s husband told her on February 7 that “they are taking him to an unknown location”, the soldier’s brother-in-law Vijay said and knowing this she sought the court’s help. The wife has not been able to stay in touch with him thereafter.
