In response to a complaint that a Kerala candidate was asked to remove her underwear before Monday's National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET), the National Testing Agency (NTA) has denied the claim. In the candidate's father's estimation, 90% of NEET test-takers were subjected to psychological torture.
There was no incident at the centre and the candidate was allowed to take the exam, according to the centre superintendent, the independent observer, the city coordinator, and Kollam.
Statement: "There was no representation/complaint to anyone during or immediately following the examination. " In addition, NTA has not received any email/complaints in this regard.
An independent observer and city coordinator's comments were obtained immediately after media reports of what was alleged to have happened were received by the National Television Authority (NTA). According to the three of them, there was no such incident taking place in the centre.
NTA's dress code for NEET does not permit the activities alleged by the candidate's parent, according to NTA officials. While keeping in mind sensitivity to gender, religious, cultural, and regional sensitivities to facilitate candidate frisking and biometric entry, the code aims to ensure the sacredness and fairness of the examination process.
NK Premachandran, a member of the Lok Sabha from Kerala, has called for a review of the exam guidelines. "Malpractices can be detected using the technology we have." Instead of resorting to such barbaric and inhumane practices, we should use them.
Human rights violations are never justifiable. He called for an investigation at the highest levels. An adjournment motion in the House of Representatives has also been filed by Premachandran.
It is claimed that a man in Kerala's Kollam district claimed that his daughter was asked to remove her undergarments before entering the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) examination centre.
The Human Rights Commission was so alarmed by the alleged incident that it ordered the Kollam rural SP to conduct an investigation and submit a report within 15 days.
The man went to the Kottarakara police station and reported the incident. Student "mental torture" was claimed by the complainant, but the National Testing Agency (NTA) dress code does not call for innerwear to be removed.
More than 90 per cent of students were asked to remove their underwear before taking the exam and deposited it in a storeroom, according to the girl's father.
