Video Of Bihar Bureaucrat Abusing Junior Officer Lands Him In Trouble

KK Pathak is also seen venting out his anger at the people of the state for not following traffic rules.


A senior bureaucrat in Bihar has been caught on camera verbally abusing a junior officer on probation during a review meeting in his department. In the widely share video, IAS officer KK Pathak is also seen ranting about people not following traffic rules in the state. The Bihar Administrative Service Association has condemned the officer’s conduct and has demanded his sacking.

“People here are like that. In Chennai, people follow rules. Have you seen anyone following traffic rules here? They even keep honking at a red light,” Mr Pathak, Principal Secretary of the Prohibition Department in the Government of Bihar, is heard saying at a meeting.

The bureaucrat launches personal attacks at the Deputy Collector and keeps abusing him despite the officer apologising to him in the presence of the other officials.

According to reports, Mr Pathak was upset over a complaint filed against him for ill-treating the Deputy Collector during training. The complaint was filed by the Bihar government in Gaya in November.

Sunil Kumar, Prohibition, excise and registration minister in Bihar government, said that disciplinary action will be taken against KK Pathak.

“The government should sack KK Pathak as soon as possible. He is not in a good frame of mind. Apart from being the Secretary of the Prohibition Department. He harasses the officers of Bihar. One officer has also died after being publicly humiliated by him. All our officials are angry about this video. We are going to take action as soon as possible. At present, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and the Chief Secretary are requested to take action against him,” said Sunil Tiwari, who heads the officers’ body.

A 1990-Batch officer, Mr Pathak was appointed as Additional Chief Secretary (ACS) at the Department of Prohibition and Excise in 2020 after he returned from central deputation.
