In Muzafferpur, India, the candidates taking an enlistment
exam for the armed forces were forced to strip down to their

treatment had engendered outrage in the country.
Military officials in Bihar state explained that "in order to
save time and control a large candidate group, this method
was preferred." One of the 1,500 recruits told the Hindistan
Express newspaper that "it was humiliating and an insult to
my honor. When we entered the field where the exam was
held we had to take off all our clothes, except underwear. We
all thought it was strange but we had to comply."

Military officials claimed that it wasn't they who made the

scaling the walls of a school to give their children copies was
on the nation's agenda for a long while.
