Guwahati, Assam:  In a significant development today, Achyut Das, a Lot Mandal working in the Office of the Circle Officer in Guwahati, Kamrup (Metro), was apprehended red-handed during an anti-corruption operation led by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, Assam. The operation was launched following a complaint alleging corruption in the processing of mutation works. 

The incident unfolded when Das was caught accepting a bribe from the complainant, who had approached the authorities seeking the necessary paperwork for a mutation. The vigilance team acted swiftly, collaborating with local law enforcement to orchestrate the sting operation. 

Achyut Das's arrest underscores the government's commitment to combating corruption at all levels. The accused Mandal had allegedly been demanding illicit payments from citizens seeking legitimate services. This blatant abuse of power had drawn the attention of concerned citizens and activists.

The Assam Police, led by  Additional Director General of Police, Surendra Kumar, played a vital role in ensuring the success of this operation. They have reaffirmed their dedication to upholding the rule of law and ensuring that public servants maintain the highest standards of integrity.

The arrest of Achyut Das serves as a reminder that corruption can have far-reaching consequences, not only for those involved but for society as a whole. It erodes public trust in government institutions and hampers the delivery of essential services to citizens.

As the investigation into this case unfolds, the people of Assam are hopeful that justice will be served swiftly. The government, alongside organizations like the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, Assam, continues to work diligently to root out corruption and ensure transparent and accountable governance.

This incident highlights the importance of reporting corrupt practices and the need for citizens to stand against such misconduct. It is a testament to the government's commitment to fostering an environment where integrity prevails, and public servants are held accountable for their actions.
