'Totally unacceptable incident'

A parent on Monday said that what happened on Sunday is totally unacceptable and he had no other option but to give a complaint.

"We dropped her around 12 noon at the examination centre and later we were asked to give a shawl by the exam officials. It was only after she came out after the examination did we realise what had happened. It seems there was a metal object in her innerwear and it was found out during the screening.

"She and many other students were asked to remove such innerwear and then only they were allowed to take the examination. Even he college where the examination took place said they had no role, as these things were done by an agency who was entrusted for the conduct of the examination," he said.

All those who candidates who had to undergo such a humiliation were under tremendous duress and they were unable to perform well because of this insensitive behaviour of the centre officials, the parent added.
