While hundreds of students fail to even make into the merit list, West Bengal Class 12 topper has topped the Jadavpur University’s merit list without even applying to the varsity.

West Bengal 12th topper, Archisman Panigrahi’s has appeared at the top of the state’s Jadavpur University’s merit list, however, the student says that he didn’t even apply for admission in the university.

The student said, “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 birth date were not mine.”

"I have written to the dean highlighting that I had not applied and I can see my name on the top," he said. He has already informed the varsity authorities.

Varsity vice chancellor Suranjan Das says that the university will take up the matter with the cyber crime department of the police.
