New Delhi: The daughter of a ruling BJP legislator was caught using unfair means in the ongoing high school certificate examination at a local examination centre in Sundargarh in Orissa.

The material was seized by the invigilator when the students were writing their the mathematics paper on Monday and handed them over to the centre superintendent.

News agency PTI quoted district collector Sujata Kartikeyan as saying that the girl's mother, Sushama Patel, who is the local BJP MLA, had obtained permission from the centre superintendent for a separate room for her daughter on the ground that she was ill.

The collector, who had rushed to the examination centre after being informed, said that the material seized had been sent to the board of secondary education, Orissa.

"Political colour was being given to a small matter,” Patel was quoted as saying.

Patel herself was a schoolteacher before entering electoral politics.
