NEET dress code: Four teachers suspended

Four teachers were suspended pending inquiry for allegedly forcing students to take off their clothes, including inner wear, as part of strict measures to stop cheating in a national medical entrance examination on Sunday.

Jamaluddin K, the principal of TISK English Medium school, one of the centres where the National Eligibility- cum-Entrance Test was held in Kannur district, told that four women teachers have been suspended pending inquiry.

In a shocking incident, a student was forced to remove her bra before being permitted to appear for the test, while another girl had to change her jeans as it had pockets with metal buttons.

The Kerala Child Rights Commission has sought a detailed report from the CBSE within 10 days, while the Kerala Human Rights Commission suo motu registered a case against the education board and demanded a high-level probe.

The strict adherence to the CBSE’s anti-cheating dress code for those appearing for the NEET-UG held on May 7 has come in for criticism after several students were asked to remove their scarves, nose-pins and cut sleeves of their tops.
