Bihar class 12 board ‘topper’ Ganesh Kumar was arrested on Friday on forgery charges after the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) cancelled his result. Patna SSP Manu Maharaj confirmed his arrest. The development comes days after BSEB lodged a police case against Kumar after he reportedly failed to answer basic questions asked by a TV news channel.

The Bihar topper was caught on the wrong foot after he asked to play some instruments, and couldn’t play anything in tune. He seemed to have a difficult time explaining what is ‘sur’, ‘taal’ and ‘matra’, considered to be the basics of music. Asked what did he do in music practicals, he unrhythmically sang a few lines of a Bollywood number. In fact, Education Minister Ashok Kumar Choudhary also extended his support to Kumar, saying he is a genuine student. He also added that even Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar was happy with this result.

24-year-old Kumar had appeared for the board exams at Ramnandan Singh Jagdip Narayan High school in Samastipur’s Chhakhabib village and secured 82.6 per cent marks.

Out of the total 12,40,168 students who wrote the examinations, only 4,37,115 passed. This was the worst BSEB result in nearly two decades.

        Despite of only 33 students passing, the topper is a cheat. I think the system in India is to make it hard for those who follow the rules and guidelines. For the cooks and cheats there is always a way. Well done and make Bihar more proud.

            I read somewhere that the music dept at the school did not have any musical instruments, laboratory was empty and the list goes on...Perhaps, the goons siphoned off the funds meant for the school leaving an empty shell. Really pathetic.

              The basic problem with the education department is that it has been run by mafias.No body want to rectify this problem as they also are the beneficiary.It is the department which is a habitual litigant and does not care any order of the court.The high ups in the department enjoy the menace.They donot bother to check it.What is the reason it may be imagined

                What is the reason for arrest and cancellation of bihar board toppers result. Is it merely that he failed to answer the journalist satisfactorily? This looks too bizarre.
