Kollam: A Kerala man on Monday claimed that her daughter was told to remove her innerwear before entering exam centre during National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) exam. The man, belonging to Kollam district, also alleged that majority of students appeared for exam went through mental pressure before allowing to enter examination centre. The examination centre, however, has denied responsibility for the incident.
His statement creates huge outrage as the Human Rights Commission has directed local police to probe the allegation. As per the report, SP Rural of Kollam will investigate the matter and will file the report in 15 days period.
The girl’s father also lodged a police complaint at concerned police station in which he said that her daughter and other female aspirants were asked to remove innerwear while entering the centre located at Chathamangalam in the district.
He said that the aspirants went through ‘mental torture’ as the dress code of National Testing Agency (NTA) does not suggest removal of innerwear. He claimed that authorities asked to remove innerwear and dump in a store room. He said that innerwear of my daughter was asked to remove as hooks in it were detected by metal detector.
Several activists from the state have criticised the incident. They said that the incident was unfortunate and cannot be accepted in any circumstances. They, however, hailed the decision of lodging a police complain and hoped that police investigation will be carried out in a proper manner. They termed it a serious allegation. They said that the concerned departments/authorities must take responsibility and should assure that there should be no such checking in future as aspirants cannot face humiliation while appearing for the entrance exam.
