Bihar which was in news for their notorious way of passing the students is in news again. A 12th Standard Humanities topper identified as Ganesh Kumar is untraceable since the examination results were declared on Tuesday. Ganesh who was a resident of Saraiya,Girdih in Jharkhand was a student of Ram Nandan Singh Jagdeep Narayan college in Samastipur which is located some 250 kms.
This is expected to open can of worms in the already scam tainted Bihar. As per the details mentioned in the admission form, his date of birth was mentioned as June 2,1993 and as per his own declaration, he is 24 years old where as the Higher Secondary exams are for the students who is not older than 19.
Also there is no date of admission mentioned in the admission form despite of he being a regular student and there is no mention of his permanent address too. All these along with the major doubt of why some one has to take an admission in a college which is located 250 kms away from his place.
“I am surprised that he has topped the Arts stream of the Bihar Board,” said Jawahar Prasad, founder secretary of the college.
The intermediate mark sheet of Ganesh Kumar is also dubious. He secured 65 out of 70 in music (practical) and 18 out of 30 in theory. He also secured 92 marks out of 100 in Hindi.
“He left home four years back and during this time he never came to Giridih,” said Mukta, Sister of the Topper Ganesh Kumar who said he left home some 4 years back and never returned.
The Bihar School Examination Board has said it has conducted the exams strictly this year after being accused of letting students pass taking money until last year has seen 64 per cent students failing the examination.
