NEET Row: Kerala HC in plea seeks compensation, re-exam for girls

New Delhi: A petition has been filed before the honourable Kerala High Court seeking compensation for the girl students, who were asked to remove their innerwear before appearing for the NEET exam in the Quilon (Kollam) district of Kerala.

Asif Azad, a Thiruvananthapuram resident, also requested an order in favour of the students, directing the National Testing Agency (NTA) to re-conduct the NEET exam within two weeks after the results' announcement. The petition will be heard by the court on Friday.

The petitioner also asked the Central Government to set up a uniform framework for conducting examinations across the country.

"No matter what the exam was, the physical examination, which was conducted under stress right before the exam, is one of the elements that damages a person's memory prior to the exam," the petitioner said.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) formed a three-member fact-finding team earlier this week to investigate an alleged incident in Kollam in which a student was requested to remove her innerwear before taking the NEET exam.

Five persons had previously been arrested in connection with the alleged event.  The detained people include three from the agency and two from the college.
