Nagaon police detained a Nagaon Treasury accountant earlier this month after questioning Khushboo Harlalka, who was previously caught red-handed collecting a bribe from a police sergeant.

Another recent such record

Earlier this month, Assam’s Directorate Vigilance and Anti-Corruption team captured one guy taking a bribe red-handed.

The guy was identified as Himonjyoti Bora, a Superintendent of Excise in the Kokrajhar District, according to the reports. He was apprehended while taking a Rs 25, 000 bribe.

“As part of the drive against corruption, Today, a team of Directorate Vigilance & Anti Corruption Assam, caught red-handed Sh Himonjyoti Bora, Superintendent of Excise, Kokrajhar Distt while receiving a bribe of Rs 25000/-. @mygovassam @CMOfficeAssam @assampolice”, the Directorate of Vigilance & Anti-Corruption of Assam wrote it in their Twitter handle.

Earlier on the same day, Four people were arrested by the Dispur police for allegedly faking the signature of the Assam Chief Minister for a government contract. The four people are from Demow in Dhemaji’s area.

For a government contract under the state’s Jal Jeevan Mission, the accused falsified the signature of Assam’s chief minister. The contract was for Rs.3 crores, it should be noted. Pankaj Gogoi, Deepjyoti Dutta, Yemini Mohan, and Binit Poddar are the accused in this case.

According to sources, Imran Shah, who orchestrated the entire scheme and is being dubbed the mastermind, has gone missing. The cops are working hard to apprehend him as quickly as possible. According to Deepjyoti Dutta, one of the imposters, the four individuals planned to steal Rs.3 crores from the government by forging the signature of Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.

Last month, the state government ordered the suspension of 40 officials based on a report filed by the Fact-Finding Committee, which was constituted after news of illegal appointments was reported by a Guwahati-based media outlet. The personnel section of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) has ordered the suspension of all 40 fraudulently appointed workers.

Another similar case

Last year, authorities from the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau nabbed Assam Police Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI), Pankaj Bora, from Morigaon Police Station for accepting a bribe of Rs. 4000.

To find his missing wife, ASI Bora asked for a bribe of Rs 10,000 from one Janiram Bordoloi.

Bora had been paid Rs. 5,000 by Bordoloi, a daily wage worker. However, the police officer sought additional money even though the case had made no progress. On Monday, the officer was caught red-handed collecting the bribe by the vigilance and anti-corruption unit. Bora was also held responsible for an additional sum of Rs. 20,000 in cash.
