The Quint: Soldier or Servant? The Quint Exposes Army’s Abused Sahayak System

Yes, you read correctly, some of our soldiers are forced to undergo humiliation by spreading handling and drying others’ undergarmets. These soldiers are called ‘Sahayaks’ or Buddies in the Indian Army. The Quint travels to Devlali Army cantonment, established during the British Raj in 1870, to dig into the abused Sahayak system.
On 13 January, Army jawan Lance Naik Yagya Pratap Singh uploaded a video on social media describing the menial duties a Sahayak is entrusted with by the Army officers and their families. A few days later, an Army jawan contacted The Quint on Twitter and gave us a better look into the ignominy.
