She has said that at the time of filling up the online application form, she was deceived by the owner of the internet cafe who informed her that her application form and the fee for the same have been submitted, despite the happening of the contrary. Due to the lack of computer literacy, she relied upon the statement made by the cafe owner, but when the admission list came out, she did not find her name on there despite meeting the cut-off.
