NEW DELHI – The controversial video of the Indian soldier Tej Bahadur who revealed the shocking state of affairs in the Indian army gained instant popularity in Pakistan and apparently, the soldier has become fodder for Pakistanis to taunt Indians.

According to the Times of India, a top BSF official (Gujarat Frontier) has revealed that at sectors where Indian and Pakistani border posts are located opposite each other on either side of the border — such as some places in Barmer sector of the Gujarat frontier — the Pak Rangers taunt Indian soldiers with jibes like, “If you are hungry, please come over. We have food here.”

A top BSF official also claims that the ISI was delighted at Tej Bahadur’s social media posts that revealed that essentials meant for them were being illegally sold in the market by their higher-ups and officers.

“The ISI of Pakistan and terror outfits operating from across the border are taking advantage of the social media posts of the Indian jawans, which demoralises the BSF,” claimed the BSF official.

The Indian authorities have already ordered an inquiry into the social media posts of another BSF jawan, Navratna Choudhari, who has also alleged corruption. Choudhari is currently posted as head constable (ministerial) at Gandhidham, Kutch.
