Ghaziabad, Mar 26: A Class X girl student was allegedly strip-searched by invigilators at a college here suspecting that she was carrying chits for copying, police said on Friday, Mar 26.

The incident took place on Thursday, Mar 25, when the girl was writing the English paper of the UP Intermediate Education Board (UPIEB) exams in Rukmani Modi Mahila Inter College in Modinagar.

The girl's family filed a complaint alleging that the invigilators made her remove her clothes to search for chits being carried for copying.

"Nothing was found in the search but the girl could not complete the paper because of the incident," they said.

Parents and family members of the girl staged a protest in the college and approached the police.
