The Anti-Corruption Bureau of Telangana is organizing “Anti-Corruption Week” from December 3, its Director General A K Khan has said.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Wednesday, A K Khan said there was no place for the corrupt officers in the ACB. There will be cultural programs during the week-long program to bring about awareness among the people against the evil of corruption in government departments, he said. Towards this end, posters to educate people on the evil will be displayed in all bus stands and railway stations in the State.
Referring to the infamous Note-for-Vote case, A K Khan said the case was being investigated totally in a transparent manner. The DG said action against Karimnagar ASI Mohan Reddy will be initiated soon after the receipt of a report from the CID. He made it clear that his department was making all-out efforts to curb corrupt activities of greedy and dishonest officials. Though there was shortage of staff in the ACB, his officials were functioning efficiently to cleanse the administration of corrupt elements, he added.
He also disclosed that his department proposed to open a Cyber Cell to handle digital evidence in investigation and to impart training in Cyber forensic to officers. Besides, the ACB will shortly get into social networks like Facebook and WhatsApp to ensure better communication between citizens and the ACB. They were also contemplating to launch a website to suit to smart phones, tablet/pad, desktop and laptop, he added. (NSS)
