Kerala school suspends 4 female teachers as they asked the female candidate to forcefully remove her bra before entering the exam center for the NEET Exam 2017.
She appeared for the NEET on May 7, 2017. When the metal detector beeped, she was allegedly ordered to take off her bra.
With just a few minutes left to the exam, she had no choice.
Another student says she had to change out of her jeans exam center for medical colleges on Sunday. They were told it was for “security”, to prevent cheating.
Her mother said:
“My daughter went inside the center only to return a few minutes later to hand over her bra”.
She also added that she had to travel 2.5 km at 8.30 AM to change the “dark-coloured lowers”.
CBSE asks the principal of the Kerala school to apologize to the female teen who was asked to take off her bra but defends the harshness of the dress code as a measure to ‘secure the divinity’ of NEET exam 2017.
The directive for the apology came after CBSE chairman R.K. Chaturvedi met HRD minister Prakash Javadekar in New Delhi.
