In a first of its kind event taking place in the history of Chhattisgarh, a Class V student from Durg district has been granted permission to sit in the class X board examination conducted by Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education (CGBSE) Raipur.

According to the report of the hospital submitted to the Board, the IQ of Livjot, who is studying in the Class V at present, was matching the ID of a 16 years old student.
