NEET girl candidate ‘harassed’ over dress code

In a shocking incident, a girl appearing for NEET exam at a centre in Kannur was allegedly told by an invigilator to remove her top innerwear, in the name of adhering to the CBSE dress code.

The mother of the 19-year-old candidate who appeared for the examination on Sunday at a centre at Pariyaram in Kannur, claimed her daughter was asked to remove her top inner wear before writing the exam.

“After my daughter entered the exam centre, she came out and handed me her bra, saying she had been asked to remove it as per the CBSE dress code,” the girl’s mother said.

She alleged the invigilator had directed her daughter to do so after a metal detector emitted a “beep sound”.

There was apparently a metal hook in the innerwear, which set off the alarm.

National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET-UG is an entrance examination for students who wish to study any graduate medical course in the country.

Different centres in the state also reported instances of girls being asked to remove their head scarves and full sleeve dresses of both girls and boys being cut off.
