Agra: The corrupt seem to have a sense of humour! In what clearly seems to be a case of forgery of admit cards to allow impersonators to appear for the exams instead of the actual candidate, a high school student's admit card has ended up with Arjun Tendulkar's (batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's son) photograph! The admit card in question is Arjun Singh's - a class 10 student of Ankur Inter College, Durga Nagar, Agra in Uttar Pradesh, who is supposed to appear for the UP High School exams scheduled to start today, 18 February.

Interestingly, the admit card has been attested and signed by school administration (see school's stamp on Arjun Tendulkar's photograph above) and issued by the UP Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad - UPMSP (Board of High School& Intermediate Education, UP.)
The source who spotted this error claims that this alleged "mix-up" is actually part of a wide web of private & public schools/ colleges in UP that are generating fake admit cards for impersonators who then write the exam for students to help them pass their examinations. "Since the attendance sheet at the exam centre does not have photographs of candidates, no one can cross-check or verify the student's identity. Even if the stand-in writer is caught writing the exam, his identity can't be established since the fake admit card would be carrying a fake photograph - like Arjun Tendulkar's", the source has told the Times of India.
