GUWAHATI, Feb 28 - In the run-up to the end of the financial year, allegations of officials demanding illegal gratification for clearing of bills have come to fore.

ADGP (vigilance and anti-corruption) Anurag Tanka said there have been complaints of demand for illegal gratification by some public servants from various departments for clearance of bills as the financial year is coming to an end.

Without disclosing the number of complaints or the departments concerned, the senior official, however, urged citizens to report such instances to the directorate in a secretive manner so that the corrupt can be booked.

�Citizens can us reach at 0361-2462294, 0361-2462295, 94350 19737 18003453767 (toll free) to share information and lodge complaints,� he said.

The appeal came on a day the anti-corruption sleuths caught red-handed one Narayan Chandra Dey, Executive Engineer PWD Electrical Division, Tezpur, while he was accepting a bribe amount of Rs 40,000 from a contractor. The accused had demanded a bribe of Rs 50,000 for approving bills regarding electrical work done by the contractor at Tezpur PWD Executive Engineer�s office, Dhekiajuli PHC and Biswanath Chariali Civil Hospital. The accused engineer has been arrested and will be forwarded to the special court at Guwahati tomorrow. House search of the accused persons is being conducted in Guwahati and Tezpur.
