CM Nitish Kumar was reportedly peeved at Prasad deciding on his own to set up a judicial panel to probe alleged bungling in the results without consulting the government. After the controversy over the results, the state Education Department and BSEB were at loggerheads. The Education Minister set up a three-member panel comprising the department’s officials, while BSEB formed a judicial commission to look into the issue. The CM overruled both decisions and set up an SIT.

Patna SSP Manu Maharaj said Shail’s name figured in the list of accused, which includes four toppers, three of them from VR College. In all, 12 accused face a case of cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy. BSEB has already cancelled the result of two toppers.

      BSEB Chairman has been made an easy scape goat in an environment of ranking illiteracy or no-education way above the IAS, IPS. Its a tragedy that Land of 4 of the 6 ancient universities in India; land of Dr. Rajendra Prasad and Jai Parkash Narayan has made Bihar land of the unskilled and the illiterate. Nitish can not escape responsibility. He won the election on the plank of undevelopment. All over India openings for unskilled, uneducated persons are filled up from Nitish's land and he wants to be the Prime Minister of India.
