ASSAM, 6 July 2023: In a significant development today, the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption in Assam made a breakthrough when they caught Jibesh Kr Deb Sharma, a Lot Mandal of Chamaria Revenue Circle, red-handed. The operation took place at the Chamaria Circle Officer's office, where Sharma was apprehended just moments after accepting a bribe in exchange for facilitating the mutation of land records.

The Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DIR_VAC_ASSAM) acted swiftly upon receiving credible information about Sharma's involvement in corrupt activities. Their team meticulously planned and executed the operation to catch him in the act. It demonstrates their commitment to upholding integrity and combating corruption within the administration.

Assam's commitment to eradicating corruption is commendable, as it paves the way for a more transparent and efficient governance system. It is essential to continue strengthening anti-corruption measures, encouraging whistleblowing, and promoting ethical practices to ensure a level playing field for all citizens.
