Ever since Bihar 'topper' Ruby Rai opened a can of worms on national television, the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) has been working round the clock to do some damage control. By asking 14 students to sit for a re-examination to prove their mettle.
However, Bihar science 'topper' Saurabh Shrestha shocked his examiners during the re-examination saying he'd 'end his life if they continued asking him questions'.
According to a report by The Week, the threat forced the examiners to stop the questioning process and they had to let him go after asking him a few more questions.
Saurabh maintained that of late, he'd been under a lot of pressure owing to the media scrutiny and hence, was unable to answer the examiners' questions.
Out of the 14 students that were to be evaluated, 11 have been given a clean chit.
Ruby Rai however, had skipped the re-examination citing health reasons and thus, has been given one week's time to re-appear.
With new details emerging everyday, the authenticity of these candidates waits to be seen.
