One Crore Bribery Scandal Uncovered in State Bank of Sikkim


In a Major operation, the Vigilance Department of Gangtok has conducted extensive raids in Gangtok, Pakyong, Jorethang, and Sombaria, targeting senior officials of the State Bank of Sikkim (SBS).

The raids were initiated following credible information suggesting widespread corruption within the bank. Officials seized a substantial amount of incriminating documents detailing alleged bribery transactions amounting to over one crore rupees.

It is reported that several senior officers of SBS received bribes over the past 5 to 6 years by instructing customers to transfer large sums of money into their personal bank accounts. The seized documents also reveal evidence related to the acquisition of movable and immovable assets, as well as large cash transactions.

FIRs have been lodged against the accused officials under various sections of the law pertaining to corruption and fraudulent activities. The investigation is ongoing as authorities continue to gather more evidence.
