What is in a name? A lot, if it is Sunny Leone.

No wonder, it created a flutter when someone by the name of Sunny Leone applied for the post of junior engineer in Bihar Public Health Engineering Department (PHED).

Bihar PHED had invited applications for the post of junior engineer (civil) between January 15 to 31, 2019 based on the marks of their diploma in engineering.

Nearly 17000 aspirants applied for the post and Sunny Leone was just one of them, but enough to draw eyeballs.

However, there is no confirmation that the candidate is genuine or somebody just filled up the online form out of sheer fun.

The candidate claimed to have a diploma of engineering with a score of 98.5 points.

Ashok Kumar, Joint secretary (management) of PHED Bihar said, “Yes, we have received an application for the post with the name Sunny Leone whose father’s name is Leona Leone and she is born on May 13, 1991. She also claims to have a diploma of engineering with 98.5 points. However, we cannot confirm that this candidate application is genuine or not. This can be confirmed only after the process of certificate and document verification is done.”

Moreover, in a notice issued by PHED Bihar, it is said that the list is a draft merit list and candidates can raise objections till February 24.

Candidates can log in to phed.bih.nic.in. to raise objections and after that the applicants will be short listed for the exam.
