Frisking Horror in Kerala with Female NEET Students; State Human Rights Commission Seeks Report


At a NEET exam centre near Ayoor in Kollam, 5 women allegedly asked female students to take off their undergarments while frisking them. About 90 students had to go through a humiliating experience before being allowed to enter the examination hall.

This is not the first time that such an incident has been reported in Kerala. In 2018, a group of 26 female students from Palakkad was made to remove their bras while frisking them before NEET exams.
