GMC Chief Engineer Arrested for Accepting Bribe in Assam


In a significant development in the ongoing crackdown against corruption in Assam, the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DV&AC) has arrested the chief engineer of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) on charges of taking bribe. The accused, identified as Indrajit Bora, was caught red-handed accepting a bribe of Rs 4,000 from a complainant.

According to sources, the complainant had approached Bora for the release of his security deposit, which was pending for quite some time. Bora had allegedly demanded Rs 4,000 from the complainant for the release of his deposit, following which a trap was laid by the DV&AC. The accused was arrested immediately after he accepted the bribe from the complainant.

The development has come as a major embarrassment for the GMC, which has been entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining the civic amenities in Guwahati. The role of the GMC has come under the scanner in recent times, with allegations of corruption and irregularities being levelled against its officials.

The arrest of Bora is seen as a major victory for the Assam government, which has been taking stern measures to curb corruption in the state. The government has been working tirelessly to weed out corrupt officials and has been successful in catching several of them red-handed.

Speaking on the matter, Assam ADGP Surendra Kumar said, “A team of DV&AC caught red-handed and apprehended Sh Indrajit Bora, Chief Engineer, O/O Guwahati Municipal Corp., immediately after he accepted a demanded bribe from the complainant for releasing his security deposit. This is a significant development in our fight against corruption, and we will continue to take stern action against those who indulge in corrupt practices.”

The arrest of Bora has sent shockwaves across the state, with people expressing their outrage over the rampant corruption in the government machinery. Many have taken to social media to condemn the incident and have called for stricter laws to tackle corruption.

Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Wing Catch Chief Engineer Red-Handed

Reportedly, a team from the Vigilance and Anti-Corruption wing caught the accused public servant, Indrajit Bora, red-handed on Wednesday. Bora, who was the chief engineer of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation, had demanded a bribe of Rs 6,000 from a complainant for releasing his security deposit. The Vigilance team laid a trap and caught Bora red-handed while accepting the bribe.

Bribe Amount Recovered, Residential Premises Searched

The bribe amount was immediately recovered from Bora’s possession and has been seized in the presence of independent witnesses. Following this, a search was conducted at Bora’s residential premises, and a significant amount of Rs 6,93,600 in cash, electronic equipment, and documents related to 19 bank accounts in the name of the accused and his family members were recovered.

The arrest of Bora and the recovery of such a significant amount of cash and documents is a significant development in the ongoing crackdown against corruption in Assam. The government has been taking stern measures to curb corruption in the state, and the arrest of Bora is seen as a major victory in this fight against corruption. Further investigation is underway.

In recent years, the Assam government has taken several steps to curb corruption in the state. The government has set up special teams to investigate corruption cases and has initiated strict action against those found guilty. The government has also launched a toll-free number to enable people to report cases of corruption.

However, despite the government’s efforts, corruption continues to be a major problem in Assam. The state ranks among the most corrupt in the country, and incidents of corruption are rampant in government offices, police stations, and other institutions.

In conclusion, the arrest of the GMC chief engineer on charges of bribery is a significant development in the ongoing crackdown against corruption in Assam. The incident highlights the need for stricter laws and better enforcement mechanisms to tackle corruption in the state. The government must take strong action against corrupt officials and must work towards creating a corruption-free environment in the state.
