BSF has rejected VRS application of constable Tej Bahadur Yadav pending court of inquiry over alleged indiscipline.
They added that the news of the cancellation of the VRS was communicated to Yadav on the evening of January 30.
His wife Sharmila Yadav reportedly told ANI that he was first forced to retire and later put under house arrest.
"I waited for him on 31st, but he didn't come". An investigation was initiated by Home Ministry to confirm if the claims made by the BSF jawan were true. Also, she alleged, Yadav called her today by using someone else's phone and told her that he has been arrested, threatened and mentally tortured. "He further said that his retirement was also cancelled within an hour and that he was later arrested", claimed Sharmila. "An enquiry has found him guilty and disciplinary action against him has been recommended, which is yet to be approved", ANI quoted BSF sources.
A video shot by Yadav had surfaced last month in which he complained about the quality of food, alleging that higher-ups sell off essentials in the market in an "illegal" manner and the personnel have to suffer.
Tej Bahadur Yadav, a soldier of Indian Army, who exposed the corruption in the army, went missing, his wife claimed.
Days after a number of Jawans went on to post a series of videos online to show the hardships they face, the army had set up a WhatsApp number for its soldiers to share their problems directly with General Bipin Rawat instead to going to social media.
The BSF constable's social media post had triggered a controversy.
BSF had however refuted that allegations of serving poor quality food to its troopers on the border.
