The wife of BSF trooper Tej Bahadur Yadav, who claimed that poor quality food was being served to soldiers on the Line of Control (LoC) Thursday said her husband is being pressurised to withdraw his complaint and apologise.
"He told me that he is being pressurised to take the complaint back, and apologise," Sharmila wife of BSF trooper said.
Earlier on Wednesday, Sharmila backed herb husband while asserting that what he did was not wrong as his intentions were to just bring out the truth.
"What he did is not wrong... he showed the truth. He has just made a demand for good food and 'roti.' To say that he has a mental problem is wrong. If this was true, why was he sent to the border and was put on duty? Why was he not sent for treatment?" Sharmila asked.
The trooper's son also backed him and said that it was not wrong to demand good food.
"How would we otherwise know what is happening. We just want a fair probe and justice," he said.
The BSF earlier on Tuesday said the jawan was court-martialled in 2010 for indiscipline and aiming a gun at a senior officer even as it assured of a thorough probe into his allegations.
He said the soldier was allowed to stay in the force on humanitarian grounds.
