Kumar, who also hails from Bishun Rai college of Vaishali along with Saurabh Shrestha and Arts topper Ruby Rai,
is the third topper in 2016 Intermediate examination in science stream.

"Rest 11 toppers who had appeared for written test as well as interview before an expert team have been found excellent and given clean chit," the chairman said.

Arts topper Ruby Rai, who could not appear for re-test on Friday on grounds of poor health has been given a week's time to come before a team of experts for authentication of her marks.

"Ruby Rai has to appear for re-test on 11 June," Singh said.

Rai, the infamous Humanities topper who pronounced Political Science as 'Prodigal Science' and described it as a
subject related to cooking in a video, had sent an application stating that she was under "depression" and so could not turn up.

The chairman announced the Board's decision after a marathon meeting with Board officials, a team of experts that
conducted re-test on Friday and also members of the anti-corruption committee of the Board.

A total of 13 toppers except for Rai, had on Friday appeared before a team of experts for authentication of the marks obtained by them in the wake of a media expose pointing fingers at their merit.

The BSEB Chairman said the Board on Saturday also decided to suspend code of Bishun Rai Intermediate college from where the
dubious Arts and Science toppers hail.

"The code of the Bishun Rai college will remain suspended till report of a probe committee to be headed by a Retired Patna High Court judge on irregularities in evaluation of marks for state +2 exam in the current year," Singh said.

The probe committee which would have senior officials and educational experts would go into alleged irregularities
in allotment of marks in the Intermediate examination which brought bad name to the state after media expose of "truth" of
the Arts and Science toppers.
