In a bizarre incident, causing severe embarrassment to a young student, the Bihar Staff Selection Commission (BSSC) issued an admit card with a picture of a topless actress. The girl, belonging from OBC category, to whom the admit card was issued on 8 January, 2017, shares her first name with the actress in the image.
BSSC, which conducts Class 12 exams, issued the admit card for General Knowledge paper under First Inter Level Combined Competitive (P.T.) exam, to a girl based out of Nalanda. The incident was first reported by Hindi daily Prabhat Khabar.
The girl's family member alleged that this was done intentionally to either harass her or make mockery of her.
The admit card, with the nude actress' image, has gone viral, causing the stress and embarrassment to the candidate.
This incident once again put Bihar's education system in the spotlight, which is already infamous for it's topper cheating scam. In 2016, the Bihar Board arts topper Ruby Rai pronounced "political science" as "prodigal science" on television, leading to an inquiry in the examination process. Several officers were later arrested.
