Analysis:

A composite picture shared heavily on social media sites in India and elsewhere online claims to show that the ‘Whistle Blower’ of Border Security Force (BSF), Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav was found dead – suggesting he was killed. The BSF Jawan (Constable) Tej Bahadur Yadav has earlier posted a video on Facebook raising concerns that the food served in forward locations was not of good quality. The video went viral soon, and he became popular through social media. But no, seen dead in the photograph is not the BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, he is pretty much alive.

Origin of Photograph

The photograph in question seems to have originated from a Retweet of Twitter account Pakistan Army – ISI, where a Pakistani Soldier Amer Khan posted it saying – Indian soldier has been killed who uploaded Indian Army food video on social media. It was also shared by Ram Subramanium, the ex- media advisor of Aam Aadmi party in India, before going viral on Twitter and Facebook.

Tej Bahadur Yadav Not Dead

Once the allegations of Tej Bahadur Yadav’s death went viral, spokesperson from Border Security Force (BSF) and also Yadav’s wife Sarmila dismissed them as rumours, saying he was very much alive and healthy. They also added that Tej Bahadur Yadav was in Jammu and Kashmir, pending a court of inquiry into the BSF’s claims of “indiscipline and intoxication”, which came as a reaction to his video. Coming to the person seen dead in the picture, according to sources, he is CRPF Jawan Hira Ballabh Bhatt, who was killed in a naxal attack on 11 March 2017 in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh. With his one eye covered up by cloth, he looked similar to BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav. Therefore, the picture stories claiming BSF ‘Whistle Blower’ Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav was killed are just hoaxes; he is alive and well.
