Bihar’s board topper Ruby Rai was arrested on Saturday after appearing for a re-test. The first 14 toppers, excluding Rai, have appeared for a re-assessment before a panel of experts and anti-corruption wing of BSEB tried to find out whether they used some fraudulent means of exam.
Rai, who has failed to appear for a re-test on June 3 and on June 17, has informed the board that she was ill.
Saurabh Shreshta is a Science topper and has scored 485/500 in her science stream while Rai has scored 444/500 in arts. Both of them were from VR college in Vailshali District. The director of the VR college was arrested and lodged to jail. Around 20 other people have also been arrested.
Ruby wil be produced in the court on Sunday. The arts and commerce topper Ruby was questioned by Bihar School Examination Board officials in Patna on Saturday She answerd as” Political sciences is all about cooking”
The police issued a non-bailable warrant against the first four toppers including Rai. Results of Rai and a few others were put oh hold. There’s a mild sting, however, portraying education in Bihar to be a dubious affair.
BSEB have claimed that exams were indeed conducted free of cheating and the piece of evidence being drastic fall in percentages. That tells it all.
