Employee of Sonitpur DC office caught red-handed taking bribe

Guwahati: An employee posted in the Deputy Commissioner’s office in Assam’s Sonitpur district was caught red-handed while accepting bribe on Tuesday.

The accused official, Bobi Khan Saikia, a copyist in the Deputy Commissioner’s office, was arrested after she demanded and accepted Rs 1,000 from a complainant in return for issuing certified copies of land documents.
The complainant had lodged a complaint with the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, Assam, alleging that Saikia had demanded a bribe.
Acting swiftly, a team from the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption laid a trap at the Deputy Commissioner’s office. Saikia was arrested at 2:30 pm moments after accepting the bribe money from the complainant.
The tainted money was confiscated, and Saikia was taken into custody with ample evidence against her.
A case has been registered at the ACB police station under Section 7(a) of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 (as amended in 2018).

Legal proceedings are currently underway to ensure appropriate action against Saikia.
