West Bengal Class 12 topper Archisman Panigrahi is in a unique predicament, his name tops the Jadavpur University merit list in four subjects without him ever applying to the varsity.

"I never applied to Jadavpur University but I came to know through a friend that my name figured in the top in the merit list for physics, chemistry, geology and mathematics. The marks and birthdate were not mine," the student said.

He said he has informed the varsity authorities.

"I have written to the dean highlighting that I had not applied and I can see my name on the top," he said.

According to varsity vice chancellor Suranjan Das the matter will be taken up with the cyber crime department of the police.
