In a bizarre and shocking incident, candidates were made to sit in underwear for the Army recruitment exam in Bihar's Muzaffarpur District. They were asked to do so reportedly in a bid to prevent any cheating, reports said.
According to report, more than 1,150 aspirants sat on an open ground (Chakkar Maidan) in Muzaffarpur on Sunday, shockingly only wearing their underwears.
Around 775 candidates appeared for the general duty category, 211 for clerical and 173 in technical category. They were not even provided a desk to write the exam.
"We had no option but to comply with the instructions even though it felt odd," a candidate was quoted as saying by a national daily.
Meanwhile, after the images were circulated across the media, the Defence Ministry has reportedly asked Army Chief Dalbir Singh Suhaag to explain.
