daily We keep hearing as to how our brave BSF Jawans save us from incursions. It is essential that these people serving the country in remote areas and risking their lives to save us are given at least some peace of minds. However this CIC order is shockingly revealing how one such Jawan was imprisoned, probably suspended as well, as his wife filed 498a, 323, 504, 506, cocktail. Now the woman is trying to get more money out of his paycheck !!
