Kollam : The Kerala police have registered a case against the accused who allegedly forced a girl to remove her inner wear at an examination centre near Ayoor in Kollam district on Sunday. The student was appearing for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

Based on the complaint of a girl who allegedly faced humiliation, a case has been registered under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), police said.
The case was filed after a team of female police recorded the girl's statement, police said.

According to police, a probe has been initiated, and the friskers allegedly participated in the act will be apprehended soon.

However, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has issued a statement saying that no incident of girls being asked to strip before the NEET exams have been reported at the centre.

NTA said in a statement that "there was no complaint to anyone during or immediately after the examination. Nor has NTA received any email/ complaint in this regard."

The examination agency also said, "As far as NTA's Dress Code for NEET is concerned it does not permit any such activity alleged by the parent of the candidate."

NTA further mentioned in the statement, "The code provides for ensuring the sanctity and fairness of conducting the Examination while observing sensitivity towards the Gender / Religious/ Cultural/Regional sensitivities involved in frisking/biometric of candidates."

The State’s Education Minister, in the letter, referred to the incident as a naked assault on the dignity and honour of the girl students.

“An agency that has been entrusted with the conduct of the examination allegedly forced the girl participants to strip before entering the test centre for reasons known only to themselves,” R Bindu wrote in the letter to the Union Minister.(TimesNow)
