Despite a ban on carrying mobile phones during duty for BSF jawans at the Indo-Pak border, it has come to light that the personnel did carry cell phones after two of them died fighting over use of the phone.

The incident happened at Shivni border post in Ganganagar. The BSF headquarters has suspended the post commander and gave instructions to strictly follow the ban.

Confirming the incident, BSF Rajasthan frontier inspector general P C Meena said there is a ban on carrying mobile phones while guarding the international border. Despite the ban, jawans have been found secretly carrying their phones during duty and has been taken seriously by the BSF headquarters.

At Ganganagar’s Shivni border post, one of the jawans, constable Jitendra Singh was continuously using his phone while his colleague constable Badal Singh tried stopping him. It resulted in an argument where both fired at each other and they died on the spot.

BSF sources said initial investigation has revealed that Bulandshahar resident Jitendra Singh was unmarried and was having an affair with a married teacher in Kanpur.

Around 2.30 pm, he called the teacher and after a few rings, she switched off her phone. This disturbed Jitendra and he kept trying her number. His actions infuriated Badal Singh who objected to it.

Badal Singh was married just a month ago, on May 20, this year. His wife is inconsolable. Both the deceased joined BSF in 2011 and took training together in Jodhpur.
