Patna: A case has been registered against four students and Director of Vishun Roy College in connection with alleged irregularities in evaluation of marks in this year's 10+2 examination held by Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB).

The four students against whom the case has been registered are Sourabh Shrestha, Rahul Kumar, Ruby Rai and Shalini.

The development comes after, Bihar government on Monday dissolved a committee constituted by BSEB to probe into alleged irregularities.

The decision to dissolve the committee was taken after Chief Minister Nitish Kumar held a meeting with Education minister Ashok Choudhary, Principal Secretary (Education) DS Gangwar and BSEB chairman Lalkeshwar Prasad Singh.

The BSEB on Saturday cancelled the result of first and third toppers in the science stream as both failed their re-test and decided to give another chance to the arts topper to appear for a re-test on June 11.

The state government has also cancelled the recognition of Vishun Roy College in Vaishali district where the two toppers, who failed in the re-test, were students.

The BSEB had on June 4 decided to cancel the results of topper Saurabh Shrestha and third topper in Science stream Rahul Kumar after they were found not up to mark during a re-test conducted by a team of experts on 13 toppers in Arts and Science streams of Intermediate level in the current year.

Arts topper Ruby Rai, in an interview to media, had called Political Science as "Prodigal Science", which according to her was about cooking, and has been directed to face experts on June 11.
