A day after a certain 'Sunny Leone', daughter of 'Leona Leone' topped the draft merit list of candidates shortlisted for the post of junior civil engineer in the bihar Public Health engineering Department (PHED), authorities said they will take legal action into the matter.

The provisional merit list for Bihar’s Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) was released on Tuesday and surprisingly, the candidate scoring the highest marks was named Sunny Leone. As the news went viral, PHED authorities clarified to media outlets that the name was possibly the result of a prank.

And now, PHEd Principal Secretary,Jitendra Srivastava has told Hindustan Times that they would be filing an FIR against the fake topper 'Sunny Leone'. According to Srivastava, the applicant could end up facing several charges under the IT Act as well as CrPC as she had not only tried to obstruct governmnet processes but also impersonated a real actress from Bollywood.

In fact, the candidacy can be confirmed as a joke or mischief as the candidate even used the actress Leone's real photo on the form, HT reported.

The hilarious mishap has grabbed eyeballs across the nation with many commenting on PHEd's carelessness in the recruitment process. Even politician and former CM Lalu Prasad Yadav's son Tejasvi Yadav tweeted about the incident.

And the actress herself could not help but comment.
