Bengal topper’s name appears in JU merit list without applying

Archisman Panigrahi

Kolkata, July 14: In a bizarre case of West Bengal, Class 12 topper Archisman Panigrahi is in a unique predicament, as his name tops the Jadavpur University merit list in four subjects without him ever applying to the varsity.

“I never applied to Jadavpur University but I came to know through a friend that my name figured in the top in the merit list for physics, chemistry, geology and mathematics. The marks and birthdate were not mine,” the student said.

He has informed the varsity authorities about the matter.

“I have written to the dean highlighting that I had not applied and I can see my name on the top,” he said.

The varsity vice-chancellor Suranjan Das ensured that the matter will be taken up with the cyber crime department of the police.
