Bihar: "Sunny Leone" tops draft list of Junior Engineer exam
If you thought Sunny Leone only possesses the skills of looking pretty and dancing on Indian item number songs, you can't be more wrong.
Apparently, Sunny has topped the draft list for the post of Junior Engineer in Bihar's Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) with 98.5 points.
Officials at the department have, however, termed this as a mischief by someone.
Here's more on this.
Bihar's Sunny has 5 years working experience with engineering diploma
Recently, the draft list was released by the department and the candidate with the maximum score was a 27-year-old single woman from General category named Sunny Leone.
Her father's name was listed as Leona Leone in the application.

Third topper is male candidate named 'bvcxzbnnb' with 92.89 points
Sunny scored 73.5 points for her academic records and 25 points for work experience.
Meanwhile, Sunny's wasn't the only glitch, if at all.
