Officials said the Staff Court of Inquiry (SCoI) would soon wrap up its investigation and submit its recommendations to the Border Security Force DG here.

Meanwhile, the Home Ministry has taken strong exception a fresh video of Yadav and has asked the BSF to look into it as part of the inquiry.

A senior Ministry official said Yadav has crossed the line of discipline and broken service rules by posting the second video.

In the fresh video, Yadav alleges that he is being “mentally tortured” and that his attempt to post the first video was to bring to light the alleged prevailing corruption in his organisation.

“The Prime Minister had said so (eradication of corruption)…I was doing the same. Is this (inquiry) what I should be getting in return?,” he said in the short video claiming he surrendered his phone to the authorities on January 10 and it has been “tampered with”.
