Nobody knows for now who played this mischief but it is a serious issue that could have affected the future of a boy. A candidate from Midnapore in West Bengal appearing for the entrance test of the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) was shocked to find his admit card with a photo of a dog.

Fortunately, the test scheduled for Sunday was cancelled after the question papers were leaked. This gave time for the candidate, Soumyadip Mahato, to get a fresh card. The test has been rescheduled for July 5.

 Mahato spotted the photo of the dog when he downloaded the admit card from the official website on Friday. His address and other details were all correct.

Even though it is a grave error, West Bengal’s technical education and training minister Ujwal Biswas sought to blame Mahato for the incident. He said over one lakh students appear for the test and none of them had complained.

He believed the agency which handles processing of the admit card and said that “this was done with the evil intension of maligning the government. Even if the boy didn’t do it by himself, the cyber café from where he uploaded the photo must be behind it.”

Gritty Mahato works at a cycle garage and passed the higher secondary examination with 71.4% marks. His father is a daily wage labourer.
