As the news of 65% students failing in the Bihar Board exams has shocked everyone, a new incident has come to light as after the announcement of results on On May 30, there is no clue about the whereabouts of Humanities topper Ganesh Kumar leading to suspicion over him securing the first position in the Board exams, according to the media reports.
Ganesh Kumar was studying in Samastipur’s Ram Nandan Singh Jagdeep Narayan College but he was a resident of Saraiya, Giridih in Jharkhand, a place 250 km from his school.
The admission form submitted by him states he was born on June 2, 1993, according to which he should be 24-year-old but a class 12th student is aged between 17 and 19, this discrepancy has led to the suspicion. Founder Secretary of the College, Jawahar Prasad said, “I am surprised that he has topped the Arts stream of the Bihar Board”.
His marksheet also raised questions as he has scored, 65 out of 70 marks in music (practical) and 18 out of 30 marks in theory. As he is untraceable since the Bihar Board announced Class 12 results, media persons tried to contact his family members to get their views and interestingly they said that have no clue where Ganesh Kumar is as he left home four years ago.

Last year in 2016, a 17-year-old Ruby Rai was declared topper in the exams but the topper scam came into to light when she pronounced Political Science as ‘Prodigal Science’. The forensic test revealed that her handwriting was different from the handwriting on the answer sheets she attempted during her exams. During interrogation, she confessed that she never wanted to be a topper aim was to clear the class 12th exam.
