Madhya Pradesh police recruitment row: Male officers conduct medical tests for women
The Madhya Pradesh Police has once again come under the spotlight during recruitment of police constables on Wednesday. This is time for their apathetic attitude towards women aspirants in Bhind.
According to reports, medical checkups for women candidates were done by male officers and in the same room male candidates paraded semi-naked in front of women in the same room. The Madhya Pradesh government hasn't commented on this fiasco.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan assured the strictest action against personnel for this apathy.
He said, " We are taking this very seriously, strictest action will be taken against those found responsible. A probe is underway."
Last month, the Madhya Pradesh Police has criticised after photographs of their newly-recruited constables sporting markings of 'SC', 'ST', 'OBC' on their chests went viral. The medical tests were conducted at the local district hospital in Dhar, which is 60 kilometres from Indore.
