West Bengal: Japanese cartoon character Shinchan Nohara made it to the Bsc (Honours) merit list of North Bengal’s Siliguri College. Yes! You heard that right! Before Shinchan, Bollywood actress Sunny Leone and singer Neha Kakkar has also mischievously made into the list, an official of the college told PTI on Monday.
Apart from Siliguri College, four colleges in West Bengal lodged an FIR in Cyber Crime Branch for this issue since Neha Kakkar’s name appeared on the merit list of BA (Honours) in English in Malda’s Manikchak College and Sunny Leone’s name in the list of BA (Honours) in English in Ashutosh College and two other colleges in Kolkata.
The college has also hired an agency to cross check the personal details of the students who took online admissions in the same batch but according to the officials, the data will be audited by the institute authorities before the new session starts.
According to the State Government of West Bengal, University of North Bengal and University of Calcutta are about to take undergraduate admissions completely online this year without charging any application fee due financial problems being faced by the people due to COVID-19 pandemic.
