Students of class 9 at a school in Bhiwandi township were left bewildered when they were asked to name cricketer Virat Kohli's girlfriend in their Physical Training (PT) examination.
During the examination at Chacha Nehru Hindi High School held on October 13, one of the questions in the paper was -- who is cricketer Virat Kohli's girlfriend? and had three options — Priyanka (Chopra), Anushka (Sharma) and Deepika (Padukone).
Students then took the question paper to their parents, who later brought it to media's attention. The picture of the paper was also doing rounds on mobile messaging app Whatsapp.
When contacted, the school management told reporters that the goof-up happened as the regular teacher was absent and the paper was set by a Hindi faculty teacher.
District education officer Ashok Misal could not be reached for comments despite repeated attempts.
