She had pleaded before the court, that she should be granted bail as she is a minor. Earlier, Rai was shifted from Beur Jail to a remand home after the court had accepted Rai's age on the basis of her matriculation certificate.

Rai had topped this year's Class 12 examination conducted by the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) in the humanities stream.

She got into trouble after a TV news channel showed her giving ludicrous answers to elementary questions related to her subjects.
