Kumar was found ‘guilty’ under section 40 of the BSF Act, 1968. This act is about prejudicial to good order and discipline of the force. Under the order, he was asked to pay seven days salary as fine. The order read:

“On 21.2.2018, during zero parade, while giving report, you used words ‘Modi Programme’ which shows disrespect towards Hon’ble Prime Minister.”

However, some of the senior BSF officers didn’t agree with the order. They even called the action to be “uncalled for” and “bit harsh.”

They also posted another tweet saying that the commandant was cautioned and asked to handle such matters judiciously. The tweet reads:
