He reached Bokaro after eight hours and continued his journey till he reached Ranchi, about 135 km from Bokaro, on Monday afternoon.
"I found the bike the only option to cover such a long distance from Nalanda to Ranchi. Buses are not plying due to the coronavirus," reported The Tribune.
He further shared, "While coming to Ranchi from Bokaro I was feeling sleepy. I stopped midway and took a nap and again resumed the journey with my daughter."
Despite the long-distance, he ensured that his daughter reaches the centre on time and attempts her exam and Around 22,843 students appeared for the JEE examination at ten centres in Jharkhand.
