Dhanbad: In what may come as an embarrassment for Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das, who recently fired a salvo at the neighbouring state of Bihar over the exam scam, an unflattering picture has come to the fore where students of the RS More College in Dhanbad can be seen cheating during their Class 11 exams.
Over 100 students were seen sitting close to each other and writing the examination paper on July 9, using unfair means in the college campus.
"There is no space in the college, that's why we are sitting outside. All the seats have been occupied," said one of the examinees.
The college authorities claimed that there were not enough room in the campus to accommodate all the students.
"I cannot see anyone cheating. The students are honestly giving their examination. The capacity of the college is not much. Two students should sit on one bench, but as of now four to five students have to adjust on one bench. It is a congested place," said Manoranjan Gupta, the college professor.
The students were seen with bags and mobile phones during the examination.
Talking about the Bihar School Education Board (BSEB) scam, Das had earlier said that students of the neighbouring state could save their career and credibility by studying in 'education hub' Jharkhand.
