CBSE issues clarification on Kannur incident
CBSE issued clarification on NEET 2017 conducted on May 7. The board came under scanner as media and parents of candidates appearing for NEET accused of insensitivity and trauma. The board blamed the incident on "few overzealous female frisking staff" of the exam centre and expressed regret for the inconvenience faced by the candidate.
However, according to CBSE, the board followed the protocol of frisking after the cheating scandal of AIPMT 2015. CBSE also clarified that the candidates were well informed about the frisking guidelines and dress code in advance.
