Patna, June 8: Sensing trouble over ongoing investigation into Class 12 merit list muddle, Bihar School Examination Board Chairman Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh resigned on Wednesday, officials said.
"Under pressure to quit, Singh has resigned," an official of the education department said.
According to reports, a special investigation team of Bihar Police probing the case after an FIR (first information report) was lodged, is likely to detain Singh for interrogation.
"Some evidences suggest Singh's involvement into the merit list muddle that defamed the state like never before," an SIT official said here.
Raids are being conducted to detain Singh but he is missing now, the official said. "Neither he is available at his official bungalow nor in his official chamber."
