Till Friday Monu Singh (19) was just an undertrial in a murder case at Dasna District Prison. But overnight he became the teenager who scored a whopping 80.4 per cent in his Class X exam despite being in jail.
Out of 20 inmates who appeared for Class XII, two secured first divisions and 14 secured second division marks. Singh was lodged at the prison for over one and half years.
Pawan Singh (20), another inmate facing trial in a dowry-death case, got 65 per cent marks.
