Kerala Police registers case against friskers who forced girls to remove undergarments

The Kerala police on Tuesday registered a case in connection with an alleged incident, where young women and girls who appeared for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test, were asked to remove undergarments to be allowed to write the exam in the Kollam district.

On the basis of a complaint from a girl who allegedly encountered the humiliating experience while taking the NEET exam on Sunday at a private educational institute in the district of Ayur, police said a case has been registered under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 509 (Word, gesture, or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman).

They added that an investigation had been started and that the friskers who were allegedly involved in the act would soon be arrested. The case was registered after a group of female officers recorded the girl’s statement. The problem was brought to light on Monday when a 17-year-old girl’s father told the media that his daughter, who was taking her first-ever NEET exam, was still recovering from the terrible experience of having to take the more than 3-hour-long exam while lacking a brassiere.

The father had stated to a television station that his daughter was dressed in accordance with the NEET bulletin’s dress code, which left out any reference of innerwear.

Numerous youth organisations protested the incident and demanded that the offenders be punished.

An probe into the event has also been requested by the Kerala State Human Rights Commission.

The Kollam Rural SP has been instructed by the Commission to submit a report within 15 days.
