‘Sunny Leone’ in merit list of two Bengal colleges, stirs controversy

When Kolkata’s Asutosh College put out the Merit List of successful candidates selected for admission to their undergraduate programme, little did they know that the list would go viral in no time.

Topping the Merit List for English was Sunny Leone by virtue of her stellar performance in the Class XII board examinations where she secured 400 out of 400. Application ID and roll number accompanied her name on the list.

While other applicants were in splits, college authorities were aghast at what appeared to be a prank. While fellow applicants were in splits at what was clearly appeared to be a  prank but college authorities were taken aback. They have filed a complaint with the cyber police department at Kolkata Police headquarters in Lal Bazar demanding they get to the bottom of this outrage.

Left red-faced, Asutosh College authorities said “it is an act of mischief” as someone deliberately submitted a wrong application having typed Sunny Leone’s name. “We have asked the admission department to correct it. We will also conduct an internal inquiry,” a college official said.

Sunny meanwhile was equally amused and posted a quick response on Twitter from Los Angeles where she stays now.  “See you all in college next semester!!! Hope you are in my class,” she said and followed that with three smileys.

Not just Asutosh College, Sunny Leone’s name came up in the Merit List of another college in Budge Budge in South 24 Parganas district, about 35 km from Kolkata. A candidate named Sunny Leone had applied there too for the same English course but with poorer Class 12 marks. Her name appeared on the fifth page of the Merit List.

Police have registered a case on the basis of complaints and will begun a probe.

Sunny incidentally had also ‘topped’ the draft list for junior engineer post in Bihar Public Health Engineering Department last year.
