Patna: The alleged kingpin of Bihar topper scam Amit Kumar Alias Bachcha Rai bail cancelled by Supreme Court today which was granted by Patna High Court.
The Nitish kumar governmnet had moved the Supreme court asking for the removal of the bail, which was granted in case Rai is not convicted by a lower court within a month.
Rai is currently lodged in a jail along with other key accused, including Lalkeshwar Singh, former Chairman of the Bihar School Examination Board, and his wife Usha Sinha.
Bachcha Rai, the Secretary-cum Principal of Vishun Rai College in Vaishali district of Bihar, was arrested in June last year. It was from this college that Ruby Rai and Saurabh Shrestha Class XII Arts and Science toppers respectively were caught on camera with absolutely no knowledge of their streams.
