PATNA: A local court today granted bail to Ruby Rai, a former intermediate arts topper, who was arrested in connection with the Intermediate toppers' scam on June 25 last.

The Additional District Judge (ADJ) - I Parvez Alam granted bail to 18 year-old Rai after her advocate K D Mishra pleaded before the court that her remand in juvenile home was wrong and not in the interest of being a teeanager.

"It will serve the best interest of the child if she is allowed bail," Mishra prayed and disagreed with the Juvenile Justice Board's contention that she had committed a grave offence by indulging in falsehood to get the top ranking in the intermediate arts examination this year.

The vigilance advocate Vijay Kumar, however, opposed her bail plea, but the court rejected his contention before granting bail to Rai.

Ruby Rai was arrested by the SIT on June 25 last soon after coming out of re-test by the Bihar School Examination Board (BSEB) which was conducted to check her academic abilities.

She was sent to Beur jail, but later got shifted to the juvenile remand home as she was found to be a minor as per details in her birth certificate.

Interestingly, it was Rai's reply to basic questions with regard to her subjects which apparently exposed her knowledge.

Ruby Rai was a student of Vishun Roy College, belonging to another alleged scamster Bachcha Rai who too has been arrested along with over three dozen other accused persons in the intermediate toppers scam.

She had said that political science was one of her subjects but described it as 'prodikal science' which teaches cooking.
