Admit card issued for a cow in India

Star Online Report

A brown cow has got an admit card issued by authorities on her name to write a professional entrance examination next week in Srinagar and former Jammu & Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah is keen on seeing her appear in the paper, reports The Times of India.

In a strange turn of events, the admit card for the entrance examination for diploma in polytechnic was issued by Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) in the name of Kachir Gaaw (brown cow) who is supposedly daughter of Gura Dand (Red Bull), assigned the roll number 257394. The cow was alloted a seat at Government Degree College Bemina for writing the examination scheduled on May 10.

The incident came to light after opposition National Conference spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu uploaded a copy of the admit card on microblogging site Twitter.

"The J&K Board of Professional Entrance Examinations issued this roll-number slip to a cow after due verification. I have both the Provisional Confirmation Page for applicant Ms 'Kachir Gaw' as well as details of payment she made to BOPEE," Mattu wrote on his account. Mattu claimed that the records about the admit card had been taken off the BOPEE site at the behest of the state government.
