Patna: The Army is silent on the allegation levelled against them for holding recruitment examination by compelling aspiring candidates to strip.
The mass examination which is likely to create countywide furore was organised in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur on Sunday.

Patna High Court taking cognisance of the matter has sought a reply from the defence ministry and Army recruitment board.

 

According to a lawyer, the Patna High Court has asked the Army to explain as to why so many aspiring candidates were asked to take their clothes off before the exams. Court is to hear the case on April 5.

Pictures circulated on the social media showed candidates writing their exams in their underpants. According to sources “Candidates appearing for such exams don’t have much option before them that’s the reason why they don’t oppose to such things”.

According to reports such a move by Army was taken in order to prevent candidates from resorting to cheating in examination. Sources said candidates with answersheets and mobile phones have been caught by invigilators in the past.

 

More than 1,000 candidates appeared in the Army recruitment exam for clerks on Sunday in Muzaffarpur. Last year pictures and videos of students resorting to mass copying during Bihar board examination had gone viral on social media causing embarrassment to the state government.
