An FIR has been registered against four students and the director of the Vishun Roy (VR) College in connection with Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) results issue. The four students against whom the case has been registered are Saurabh Shrestha, Rahul Kumar, Ruby Rai and Shalini Rai. After media furor over them being unable to answer the simplest of questions related to their respective streams, they received a re-examination – which 4 of them either failed, or refused to take.
The decision to dissolve the committee was taken after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar held a meeting with Education minister Ashok Choudhary, Principal Secretary (Education) D S Gangwar and BSEB chairman Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh.
Bihar CM Nitish Kumar said about the controversy, “I am going to seek more information on this and take action. A similar case had come to the fore even earlier and we re-examined all those whose names were in the top 10 list.”
“The education department is looking into the matter and the state government will also intervene. Nobody will be spared. It is good that this issue came to light, as I am sure now that it won’t happen again after tough action.”
“The probe can also take a criminal turn. Anyways, a probe is underway and I am confident that the education department will come through in its investigation.”
The Education department last night had lodged an FIR at the Kotwali police station against students Saurabh Shrestha, Rahul Kumar and Ruby Rai under section 420, 465, 467, 468, 471 and 120B of Indian Penal Code. FIR has also be registered against Baccha Rai, the Principal of the Bishun Rai College and other officials involved in conducting of examinations.
BSEB Chairman Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh today resigned from his post. The four students against whom a case of cheating has been registered are Ruby Rai, Saurabh Shrestha, Rahul Kumar and Shalini, who reportedly topped in Arts, Science and Commerce in Hajipur district.
Bihar Education Minister Ashok Choudhary also confirmed the registration of the FIR for allegedly committing irregularities in the 10+2 exam of Arts and Science streams. “The government, prima facie, found there are some irregularities and hence, the FIR has been registered in the case. Follow up action will take place. DGP will tell about further action,” Choudhary said.
