Ranchi, July 13: If Bihar 'toppers' made mess of the 'Prodigal science', Jharkhand class 11 students are not behind. In a major embarassment for Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das, a picture has come to the fore where class 11 students of the R S More College in Dhanbad are sitting in groups and copying from each other.
Over 100 students were seen sitting close to each other and copying from their peers during their class 11 examination paper on July 9.
One of the examinees said, "There is no space in the college, that's why we are sitting outside. All the seats have been occupied."
Manoranjan Gupta, the college professor said, "I cannot see anyone cheating. The students are honestly giving their examination. The capacity of the college is not much. Two students should sit on one bench, but as of now four to five students have to adjust on one bench. It is a congested place."
The students could also be seen sitting with bags and notebooks although the professor said that they were not allowed in the campus.
Earlier picking at the Bihar School Education Board (BSEB) scam, Das had said that the students of the neighboring state could save their career by studying in the education hub Jharkhand. BSEB chief Lalkeshwar Singh and his wife were arrested in the Bihar merit scam along with many others. Incidentally, the matter came to light after the results of the Class 12 board examinations were declared and the 'toppers' were shown clueless about the subjects they topped.
Ruby Rai, who topped the Arts section was asked what was Political Science. She said, it was the art of cooking. Meanwhile, the science topper Saurabh Kumar was kept wondering what was the relation between water and H20.
Rai and three others were later arrested after failing the re-test.
