In a gaffe, Bollywood actress Sunny Leone’s picture was printed on the admit card of a candidate, who appeared for the Karnataka Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET-2022), conducted on November 6.
An inquiry has been ordered into the incident by the education department after the screenshot of the admit card went viral.
The faux pas came to light when an applicant produced her admit card carrying the actress’s image at the exam centre at Rudrappa College. As of now, a complaint has been filed by the institution’s principal with the Cyber Crime Police.
As per police, the goof-up would have occurred at the time of uploading the passport size photograph while filing the application form online.
The candidates said she asked others to file her oinline application form on her behalf. According to a statement by the state education department, candidates have to fill their application forms online for which a unique user ID and password is generated, which belongs only to the candidate and one else can meddle with it.
The department clarified that it has no role in generating the admit cards, as it has to be done by candidates only.
In its clerification, the Public Instruction Department said, “The department has no role in whatever media is reporting on this issue. Yet we have requested the police to investigate the matter and initiate action against those responsible for the incident.”
