Ac­tion likely against 15 As­sam po­lice of­fi­cers

DNA (Delhi) - - INDIA -

Guwa­hati: As­sam gov­ern­ment is likely to al­low the po­lice for fil­ing chargesheet against 15 pub­lic ser­vants, in­clud­ing state civil ser­vice of­fi­cers, in cor­rup­tion cases, a source in the Home De­part­ment told PTI.

Of the 15, four had been in the rank of ad­di­tional deputy com­mis­sioner be­tween 2003 and 2017 - the pe­riod when the cases were filed.

As per rule, the po­lice have sought sanc­tion from the gov­ern­ment to go ahead with fil­ing of chargesheets against the of­fi­cials in as many as 11 cor­rup­tion cases across the state.

“The gov­ern­ment has re­ceived re­quests for prose­cu­tion sanc­tions against some of­fi­cials. It is un­der con­sid­er­a­tion. As the thrust of the gov­ern­ment is zero tol­er­ance for any kind of cor­rup­tion, the nec­es­sary sanc­tions will be is­sued in the com­ing days,” the Home De­part­ment source told PTI.

Some cases were re­lated to land, in­clud­ing frauds in pro­vid­ing com­pen­sa­tion to peo­ple dur­ing ex­pan­sion of na­tional high­way.
