JORHAT, April 9 � Following an order from Jorhat Deputy Commissioner Solanki Vishal Vasant, the police on Wednesday initiated an investigation into a case of alleged corruption at the District Treasury office here. Two officials have been accused of demanding bribe by a retired principal of a high school in the district.

The complainant, Hemodhar Kalita alleged that Rubul Bora and Pradip Rajkhowa of the Treasury office refused to do their official works to regularise his monthly pension if he did not pay them Rs 50,000.

As the officials had earlier denied the receipt of the official documents for Kalita�s pension (which were sent from the Guwahati office concerned), the retired principal had to move the Guwahati office of the department several times, which clarified that the papers were sent in the first week of January, 2015 to the District Treasury office.

During an inquiry at the head post office here, Kalita came to know that the papers for regularizing his monthly pension were delivered on January 17, 2015. He also got the proof of receipt of the papers by the Treasury officials who allegedly sought bribe from him.

�As I informed the Deputy Commissioner, he immediately ordered a probe by the Additional SP (Vigilance). My statement has been recorded by the Additional SP and an Additional Deputy Commissioner for the investigation,� said Kalita.

When asked if any action has been initiated against the two accused officials, an administrative officer said that both of them were issued notices on Wednesday. The officer said that both of them would have to face legal action if found guilty in the case.
