Bhopal: Police recruitment tests in Madhya Pradesh continue to be dogged by controversies. Days after caste-branding of police constable aspirants during their fitness tests in a government hospital in the state triggered an outrage, a controversy erupted on Wednesday over medical examination of female cops by male doctors in another government hospital in MP.

A video clip showing the female police constable recruits being subjected to fitness and medical examinations by male doctors in the government hospital in district headquarters town of Bhind went viral, prompting the local administration to act against the erring officials.

The clip also showed the female recruits being lined up along with their male counterparts, who were stripped to their undergarments, in one room for fitness and medical tests.

Fitness and medical tests of 18 female and 21 male cop recruits were being done in district headquarters in Bhind on Tuesday, said sources. “It is inappropriate to conduct medical and fitness tests of male and female police constable recruits in one room,” Bhind district collector said.

“It is also wrong to conduct tests of female cops by male doctors. The in-charge of medical board, constituted for the purpose, Devendra Sharma, has been placed under suspension in connection with the incident.”

Action would be taken against all the officials found guilty, he said. District civil surgeon Ajit Mishra said that a investigation has been ordered and show cause notices were issued to five doctors.
