After Bollywood actor Sunny Leone, now playback singer Neha Kakkar’s name has appeared at the top of the provisional merit list of a college in West Bengal’s Malda district. College authorities allege that it is an act of mischief executed by some.
The college authorities said that they spotted Neha Kakkar’s name in the merit list on Friday and promptly acted to rectify it and issue a fresh, corrected one.
Reacting to the news, the college principal, Aniruddha Chakraborty said, “We have filed a complaint with local police station and the cyber crime cell. The admission procedure of our college is entirely managed by a Kolkata-based external agency. We don’t have any knowledge of students applying for the admissions.”
Calling it out and dubbing it an ‘alarming trend’, he added that the state government is trying to make the online college admission procedure a smooth and transparent one but some people are trying to malign the state`s higher education system.
Trinamool Chhatra Parishad, the student wing of All India Trinamool Congress, said, “It appears like a conspiracy since, in the last three days, actor Sunny Leone’s name appeared on the merit list of three different colleges.”
Earlier, actor Sunny Leones name appeared in the merit list of Kolkata’s Ashutosh College for BA (Honours) admission. According to the screenshot of the merit list for BA (Honours) in English in Ashutosh College, which came out last week, Sunny`s name appeared at the top of the list with a perfect score of 400 in best four subjects.
After the news went viral, the 39-year old actress, who is currently in isolation in Los Angeles, had also reacted on Twitter, saying: “See you all in college next semester!!! Hope your in my class.”
