“I was asked to take down the video but I refused,” he told CNN News18.

Following the video, BSF had accused Yadav of indiscipline and said he had faced disciplinary issues in the past.

“Admittedly, we make mistakes while we perform our duty. We take our punishments and continue to do our duty. But they haven’t shown that I have done good work too, I have gotten 14 awards,” Yadav said.

“There are too many things which will come out once the inquiry will be done. The government is doing everything they can but still we don’t get anything. Yes, I fear the consequences. But if because of me many other soldiers benefit then I am ready to fight,” Yadav added.
