Girl student says asked to remove innerwear; NTA rubbishes claim | India News – Times of India


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala government on Monday decided to protest against the “human rights violation” of several girl students’ as they were allegedly forced to remove their innerwear during screening for unauthorised material before the 2022 medical entrance examination conducted at a centre in Kollam district on Sunday. Officials of the NTA, responsible for conducting the NEET-UG 2022, rubbished the allegations.
NTA officials claimed the allegations of a female candidate were “fictitious and motivated by bad intent”. The NTA observer for the centre blamed a police officer related to the girl student for concocting the charge. He was angry with the centre superintendent for not letting one of the parents of the candidate rest on the college campus during the exam.
Protests erupted against the exam centre on Monday as news of the alleged harassment spread. The Kerala human rights commission sought a report from Kollam police. “It was most unfortunate that the organisers of the examination took such an extreme step towards girls. It is nothing but a human rights violation. The state government will seek action against those responsible,” said Kerala higher education minister R Bindu.
