Karnataka: Sunny Leone's photo on TET admit card, probe ordered
In a faux pas, the hall ticket of a candidate appearing for the Teacher's Eligibility Test (TET) in Karnataka was found bearing the photo of Bollywood actor Sunny Leone instead of the candidate. The matter came to light at Rudrappa College on Sunday, following which a screengrab of the admit card went viral, prompting the education department to order an inquiry into the case.
Candidate claimed she hadn't filled the form
The principal of the college also filed a complaint with the Cyber Crime police. The police said the blunder must have happened during the online registration process. The candidate said that she hadn't filled out the form but asked her husband's friend to do it for her. The education department clarified that whatever photo is uploaded by the candidate is fed into the system.
