    Published on February 24, 2017


    New Delhi: The Border Security Force (BSF) told the Delhi High Court that the allegation of one of its jawans on social media regarding poor quality food being served to its troopers posted along the LoC was false as no complaint was ever made.


    On thursday, in an affidavit filed by the BSF said, that soon after the video went viral on social media, senior officials visited the concerned battalion, but no complaint regarding poor food was brought to their notice.


    Brushing aside allegations levelled by the Jawan, the BSF said a very transparent system was in place to ensure quality diet for the troopers since their health and safety is a prime responsibility. It also said, a detailed Staff Court of Inquiry has been ordered to enquire into the allegations made by the jawan through video and same has been concluded and further action will be taken in accordance with the law.


    The BSF response came in the backdrop of a PIL seeking direction to MHA to submit a status report with respect quality of food supplied to all paramilitary forces in India.
