Actress Sunny Leone tops the list of junior engineering exam in Bihar. Yes you read it right. In a bizarre prank Leone’s name featured as the top ranker on the list of successful candidates, who had applied for over 200 posts of junior engineer.
The list was uploaded on the website of Public Health Engineering Department’s website. According to the list Sunny Leone has scored a total of 98.5 points, out of which she scored 73.5 points in academics and 25 points in experience. The list showed Sunny Leone’s father’s name as Leona Leone.
Following this the 37-year-old actress tweeted, “HAHA, Im so glad the other me has scored so well!!!!!! Lol…..”
After Leone the third spot was bagged by a candidate named ‘bvcxzbnnb’ with 92.89 points.
However the PHED officials explained that the list was system-generated and based on the preliminary assessment of the applications submitted by candidates. They further added that the final list will be submitted on the basis of submission of documents and interviews.
The draft list was released on February 15 by PHED authorities so that candidates could make corrections, if required, by February 24.
PHED minister Vinod Narayan Jha said that the department would like to examine candidates who submitted all the documents for verification and still carried out the prank.
Meanwhile opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav mounted a sharp attack on Bihar’s Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his government education policy. He alleged that the state government followed a policy of “Farzi topper banao, farzi naukari pao(make fake toppers, get fake job)”
Earlier, in the year 2016, a massive cheating scandal had hit Bihar when a candidate, who was among the toppers of class 12 board exams. The then topper was caught on camera saying that political science is a subject in which one is taught how to cook. She was arrested.
