Bihar topper scam: SC refuses to grant relief to Bachha Rai

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The Supreme on Thursday refused to grant any relief to accused Bachha Rai in connection with the topper scam.

Earlier last month, the High granted conditional bail to Rai.

He got bail after not being convicted by the lower within a month.

Rai was arrested in June last year after he surrendered before the police.

Rai is the Secretary-cum Principal of Vishun Rai College in Vaishali district of Bihar, where Arts and Science toppers Ruby Rai and Saurabh Shrestha belonged to, and was involved in the exam racket.

The investigation indicated that Rai was a key player in the case with the help of School Examination Board (BSEB).

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) arrested state board Class XII Arts topper Ruby Rai previous year.

A chargesheet was filed against former BSEB chairman Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh, his wife and former JD (U) legislator Sinha, Rai and former board secretary Harharnath Jha.
