The vigilance and anti-corruption branch of Assam police on Wednesday searched four properties of a divisional forest officer in Guwahati in connection with an alleged corruption case.
A team of the wing searched the house of the DFO, Aftabuddin Ahmed at Sundarpur, a flat at Spanish garden, a luxury apartment in front of Assam State Zoo, another residence at Japorigog and a girls hostel in Six Mile area of the city.
A source said the properties were in the name of Ahmed and his wife.
A case was registered recently under Section 13 (1) (e)/13 (2) of Prevention of Corruption Act following a complaint of amassing assets disproportionate to his known source of income.
Ahmed is now posted in the silviculture branch of the state forest department.
A source in the anti-corruption wing said they seized documents, sale deeds and hard discs for analysis to prove the allegations against him.
