The Delhi High Court will take up the habeas corpus plea on Friday , in which Border Security Force (BSF) soldier Tej Bahadur Yadav’s wife Sharmila has said she is unable to contact him for the past three days.
Yadav’s complaint about bad food at his unit had triggered a row.
In the plea, the soldier’s wife Sharmila said she was worried about his safety and pleaded that her husband be produced before the court.
Earlier this month, Sharmila alleged that her husband has been detained by the BSF. She lives with her son in Haryana’s Rewari.
Sharmila claimed her husband told her on February 7 that he was being taken to an unknown location. The family members haven’t been able to get in touch with him ever since.
The family is said to have written to the BSF, but haven’t got any reply.
Tej Bahadur Yadav had posted four videoson the social media in January, 2017, that showed his complaining about the unpalatable food at his camp along the Indo-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir. The videos triggered outrage across the nation, but the BSF dismissed his allegations.
A probe was later ordered.
