BSF can sack jawan without probe for spying: HC | India News

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana higher courtroom has upheld dismissal of a BSF constable, Binder Singh of Fazilka for passing delicate facts to a Pakistan spy about BSF deployment in the border places of Punjab.

Whilst serving with 41-Battalion of BSF in Abohar sector, Binder had on November 3-4, 2012, communicated some highly-sensitive data about BSF deployment to the spy. He applied terms like “haveli” for battalion headquarters and “kutte” (canines) for BSF personnel to communicate with the spy.

The division bench, headed by Chief Justice Krishna Murari has also held that if it was impractical for the BSF to maintain an inquiry in as significantly as it would have been prejudicial to countrywide interest, it can dismiss the providers of its personnel without keeping a court of inquiry.
