A Border Security Force (BSF) jawan who forgot to affix 'honourable' or 'Shri' while referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been served with a bizarre punishment by the central armed police force.
The Border security force termed the incident as a mistake on part of the jawan and "disrespect" to the Prime Minister. The constable was handed down a seven-day pay cut.
The incident took place on February 21 inside the BSF's 15th Battalion headquarters in Mahatpur, Nadia (West Bengal), during the zero parade, a routine exercise to account for jawans' daily activities.
During the parade, constable Sanjeev Kumar used the word "Modi programme" while giving a report.
