According to sources, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has also sought a report from Army Chief Dalbir Singh on this issue.

The incident took place on Sunday when around 1150 candidates, appearing for the post of clerks in the army, were ordered to take off their clothes and sit in only underwear in an open ground to prevent cheating.

The director of the recruitment board has justified such brazen decision saying that they earlier encountered bad experience with cheating. Hence such a radical decision was the need of the hour.
