Assam: CEO of Dhubri zilla parishad arrested on bribery charges

A significant breakthrough was made by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) on Friday, as they apprehended the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Dhubri Zilla Parishad, Biswajit Goswami, and his Assistant District Programme Manager, Mrinal Kanti Sarkar, on charges of accepting bribes.

Goswami, the CEO of Dhubri Zilla Parishad, and his assistant, Mrinal Kanti Sarkar, were caught on camera accepting a bribe of Rs 30,000 from two Zilla members in exchange for approving developmental projects under government schemes.

The DVAC acted swiftly on receiving a tip-off and devised a meticulous plan to catch the accused officials in the act. Setting up a trap, the vigilant team pounced on Goswami and Sarkar while they were exchanging the bribe money within their office premises. 

The authorities also seized the illicit cash and crucial documents as evidence, which will undoubtedly strengthen the case against the accused.

The DVAC also searched Goswami’s house and an amount of Rs.23285300/-(two crores thirty two lakhs eighty five thousand and three hundred) has been recovered.
