ACB arrests Naib Tehsildar, in South Kashmir for accepting bribe

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) recently made arrests in Khrew, Pulwama, involving a Naib Tehsildar and a Constable. The ACB acted upon a complaint alleging that the Naib Tehsildar was demanding a bribe of Rs 10,000 through his clerk, Ajaz Ahmad, to settle a land dispute in Sathpokhran village. Despite the complainant’s efforts to resolve the matter through the Tehsil Office, the Naib Tehsildar persisted in his demands and even harassed the complainant with notices.

Responding to the complaint, the ACB registered a case under FIR number 02/2024 and initiated an investigation. A trap team was formed, which successfully caught the accused, Maqbool Hussain Dar, red-handed while accepting the bribe. Dar, who was posted as Naib Tehsildar in Khrew, was apprehended along with the Constable, Ajaz Ahmad, for facilitating the commission of the offense.

The arrests highlight the ACB’s commitment to combating corruption and holding public officials accountable for their actions. Such actions serve as a deterrent to others who might engage in similar unethical practices. The ACB’s swift response to the complaint and the subsequent arrests demonstrate its proactive approach in addressing instances of corruption in the region.

The involvement of both a Naib Tehsildar and a Constable underscores the need for vigilance across all levels of government. By apprehending individuals at various ranks, the ACB sends a strong message that corruption will not be tolerated, regardless of one’s position or influence. The ongoing investigation signifies the ACB’s dedication to uncovering the full extent of the corruption allegations and bringing those responsible to justice.

The public’s cooperation in reporting instances of corruption is essential in the fight against this pervasive issue. The ACB encourages citizens to come forward with information and complaints, assuring them of confidentiality and swift action. By working together, law enforcement agencies and the public can create a more transparent and accountable governance system.
