It may be mentioned here that Hemanta Gohain was in news recently for seeking bribe.
Soon after the news came to the notice of the Deputy Commissioner, he sought preliminary reports from Sub-Divisional Officer (Civil) of Gohpur and Circle Officer of Gohpur Revenue Circle. On the basis of the reports submitted, the Mandal has been placed under suspension.
Departmental proceedings will now be initiated against him, officials informed.
“This is a stern message to all that corruption and irregularities will not be tolerated at all. Each and every employee will have to take his work seriously and will have to dedicate themselves for the welfare of the people and development of the district” said the Deputy Commissioner.
The suspended Mandal has also been barred from leaving the headquarter without prior permission of the Deputy Commissioner.
