Patna: The Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) on Tuesday canceled the recognition of 68 inter-colleges and 19 schools. The investigation in the toppers’ scam in the state is underway.

The state government had instituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by Manu Maharaj to conduct a probe into the toppers’ scam and answer sheets of some candidates were sent for forensic examination.

The results of Ruby Rai and that of Saurabh Kumar, Science topper in the state’s Plus 2 examination this year, were canceled after they failed to replicate their performance in a re-test.
