The controversy came to the fore on Monday after the father of a 17-year-old girl told the media that her daughter, who is appearing for the NEET for the first time, is yet to recover from the “painful experience” of sitting for over three hours without bra.

The father, in his complaint, has alleged that during the security check at the Mar Thoma Institute of Information Technology, examination centre, the girl was asked to remove her bra after a metal hook beeped.

“Is your future or innerwear bigger for you? Just take it off and don’t waste our time,” the father’s complaint quoted security personnel as saying.
The complaint also claimed that “90 per cent of the girl students had to have their internal organs removed and kept in a storeroom”.
While the testing center has denied the allegation, the National Testing Agency today said that “the NEET dress code does not permit any such activity alleged by the candidate’s parents”.
Kerala Higher Education Minister R Bindu has written to Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan seeking strict action against the agency that allegedly forced girls to remove their bras before allowing them to enter the examination hall.
The Kerala minister expressed her “disappointment and shock” over what she termed as a naked attack on the dignity and honor of girl students appearing in the NEET exam.

“The shame and shock of this unexpected turn of events has dented the morale and stability of students whose performance in tests was affected,” Ms Bindu wrote, recommending strong, preventive action. “I write to write that we strongly oppose this kind of inhuman treatment from an agency which is only tasked to conduct examination in a fair manner”, the minister said.
The Kerala Police has registered a case against those who conducted a security check and allegedly asked them to remove their underwear.
