A 24-year-old woman on Thursday accused officials conducting the National Eligibility Test (NET) of not allowing her to appear for the examination after she refused to take off her ‘hijab’ (head scarf).
The officials, however, maintained that hijab and other accessories are not allowed to prevent cheating and also from the security point of view.
Safina Khan Soudagar alleged that when she arrived at the examination centre in Panaji on December 18, the supervisor there asked her to remove her hijab. When she refused to do so, he did not allow her to sit for the test, Soudagar told mediapersons here.
NET is conducted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to determine eligibility for college and university level lecturership and for the award of junior research fellowship, as reported by PTI.
