GUWAHATI, June 13 - The sleuths of vigilance and anti-corruption cell of Assam Police today caught red-handed Syed Shahjahan (48), a field level officer of NRC Sewa Kendra located at Ganeshguri, while he was accepting a bribe of Rs 10,000 from one Kajari Ghosh Dutta.

In connection with the incident, police also arrested Rahul Parasar (27), an assistant local registrar of citizen registration (LRCR) of the same NRC Sewa Kendra, for his involvement in the illegal act.

�The accused had demanded a bribe of Rs 10,000 for entering the name of the complainant in the draft NRC. The accused had highlighted some technical defects in her application and demanded bribe from her to correct the technical defects and enter her name thereafter into the final draft of NRC. Today, the complainant was to pay the bribe amount. Thus, the complainant had approached the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti- Corruption, Assam and a trap was laid as per standard procedures,� said a statement of the police.

Meanwhile, after the arrest, the NRC authority, in a statement, said, �It is affirmed that any official found involved in any illegal activity will be punished as per law. However, preliminary findings indicate that the NRC officials at Ganeshguri NSK under Dispur Circle have no role to play in the matter of inclusion or exclusion of the claimant or complainant.�

The statement also said the hearing of that NRC claimant has already been completed in May 2019 at a different venue far away from Ganeshguri and that too by an officer who is from another circle and has no connection with the Ganeshguri NSK.

�In fact, the Ganeshguri NSK is not even a claims hearing venue and these officials have no role to play in it. Results of the hearings have been recorded and received in central servers during the month of May itself. As such, the NRC officials at the Ganeshguri NSK cannot influence the matter of inclusion or exclusion of the claimant or complainant or for that matter any other NRC claimant also. It is reiterated that the system of NRC update is strong enough to ensure quality and will remain unaffected even in case of complicity by any official. Public, therefore, need not worry due to such incidents,� the statement added.
