New Delhi: After the infamous arts topper Ruby Rai, who referred to Political Science as cooking class, was arrested and then granted bail by the Special Investigation Team in Bihar, another schoolboy has been arrested who had ranked third in Science in Class 12 exams.

About 62kms away from Patna, Rahul was arrested by the SIT for his involvement in the Bihar topper scam.

The scam had been unearthed when TV reporters who were interviewing the toppers started asking basic questions to the students, which the latter failed to answer. After the students of the Vishnu Rai College were asked to appear for a re-test; Rahul who had topped his class, apparently failed.

Ruby had earlier claimed that she was unwell when asked to appear for the exam on the scheduled day. She was then arrested by the SIT. She is among the 20 who have been arrested in involvement in Bihar topper scam.

Many criticise this move by the government to clamp down on students instead of nabbing the minds that had cooked up the massive scam.
