The case came out in the open when she could not even answer elementary questions on television

Bihar's fake topper case(Ruby Rai) has clearly exposed the condition of education in the state that also happens to report the highest number of cheating incidents during examinations in India.

The case came out in the open when she could not even answer elementary questions on television after she topped the class 12th examination last month when she mispronounced political science as “prodigal science”.

Her one-line essay on Tulsidas in the re-examination once again showed that she passed the examination by cheating and not merit. All she wrote in that essay was: “Tulsidas-ji, pranam.”

And, that's not it. What she told the interrogators would make your jaw drop.

Maine to Papa se kaha tha pass karwa dijiye, unhone to top hi karwa diya,” she has reportedly told her interrogators. (I had only told Papa to get me passed but they went ahead and made me topper)

Manu Maharaj, Patna special SP, told a leading newspaper that Ruby Rai has accepted that she didn’t deserve to be a topper and had expected second division at best. She now blames her parents and her college principal Bachcha Rai for making her a topper.

However, the police aren’t convinced about her ignorance of the scam. There’s also some controversy over her age as she might be a minor. The SSP added that there was enough proof of tampering and that the answers were written in fresh sheets, and one of the toppers had been awarded 51 out of 50 marks.

News reports say that Rai was asked about a dozen questions from the syllabus by a seven-member expert committee of the board. Re-exams were ordered after she in a TV interview said that political science, a subject she virtually aced, teaches you how to cook.

Following the furore over the Bihar Board examination toppers, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had earlier said the guilty won't be spared, adding the investigation into this matter will be done with a criminal angle.

The BSEB earlier on June 4 cancelled the results of two toppers, including Sourabh Shrestha, of the Intermediate (Science) examinations after they failed to prove their merit in a re-test.
