Women Medical Aspirants Forced To Remove Their Bras At NEET Exam. So Now Wearing A Bra Is A Crime?

By  | 

We’ve all heard the invasive and disturbing stories of what women go through as medical aspirants. Most of these stories are so bizzare but an actual nightmare for these women. And by the looks of it, things seem to be just getting worse for them. Just take the instance of a recent incident that took place at the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) Undergraduate (UG) examination centre in Kerala where the women medical aspirants were forced to remove their bras before entering the exam hall, reportedly it had to do something with ‘metal hooks’. This is ridiculous. God, make me see the logic here!

On Sunday, July 17, at the NEET UG examination centre that took place at the Mar Thoma institute of Information Technology in Ayur, Kerala, women medical aspirants were forced to remove their bras in order to enter the exam hall. The incident came to light when the parents of a student filed a complaint with the Superintendent of Police of Kollam Rural.

The father of a woman medical aspirant, Gopakumar Sooranad, in his complaint stated that the official information bulletin that is issued by the National Testing Agency (NTA) doesn’t anywhere mention a ban on bras with hooks. He further said that when his daughter refuses to remove her bra, she was asked not to write the NEET UG exam. 

The father added, “My daughter had been preparing for this exam for a long time. But she was not even able to write the exam properly. She returned to us crying, distressed. They had compulsorily asked the girl students to remove their innerwears. The children were very uncomfortable. Many of them were crying. If it is the rule, they can check the innerwear during frisking. But why remove them? There are no such rules in the NEET bulletin.”

Describing the horrible incident that took place at the NEET UG exam hall, Gopakumar Sooranad called it mental torture. While this was the case on one hand, on the other, the Mar Thoma Institute of Information Technology told a daily that none of their staff were involved in the frisking of students. They further pointed out that they don’t know what the rules are regarding frisking and there were two agencies that were assigned by NTA for frisking.

The police have also started an investigation and the friskers who were involved will be arrested.
