Two coaching classes fight a court case to take credit for the topper who had joined neither of them

Mumbai: Coaching classes in India have been given more importance than the regular schools. On Friday, when newspapers carried full-page advertisements inserted by two coaching institutes announcing the achievements of their students in the AIIMS entrance test, they seemed to be another in a series on exam results in recent days, from CBSE Class XII to JEE Advanced. To a careful observer, however, there was an oddity in the ads. Two coaching classes, Malik Career point, and Srivastava Bright career had carried the same photo of the topper. akshay-annu-759

Jagdish Malik and Shwetank Srivastava have filed a court case against each other to take credit for the district topper. Both have their work cut out in the court as after investigation by our team it was found that the topper had not attended any of the classes. The topper used to take the road from his school to home and in between these both coaching classes were situated. So just for using the road, both classes think it was their contribution to him clearing his entrance exams with flying colors

Both coaching classes have submitted the CCTV footages which show the topper walking near their institute and both institutes claim that he was nearer to them than the other. It is a tough matter to resolve and the judge can even ask the topper as to which institute according to him has been more instrumental in helping him crack his entrance exams. The case itself is a lesson to all coaching classes to define their boundaries and take credit for a student who was seen inside their boundary without taking away credit from other institutes nearby.
