Earlier in the day, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma posted a tweet along with a newspaper clip that published a picture of Bikaner, which showed a security guard cutting off the sleeves of a female candidate's dress. He wrote, "How can they cut girls' clothes in the name of curbing imitation? This is torture. Ashok Gehlot You have to stop this dictatorship."

Even though the NCW is talking about only one incident, there were several such incidents across the state on Wednesday during the RAS preliminary exam. Reportedly, the candidates were told that they would not be allowed to wear full-sleeved clothes during the exam. This was done to prevent copying and security guards outside several examination centres cut off the entire sleeves of the clothes worn by female candidates.

However, photographs of other such incidents suggest that the sleeves of women's clothes were mostly cut by women security guards elsewhere. In recent times, the Rajasthan government is taking strict measures to prevent cheating in the examinations. In this regard, the government had shut down mobile internet services, social media and messaging platforms so that the candidates could not misuse it.

It is noteworthy that the RAS Preliminary Examination was conducted by Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC) on Wednesday (October 27, 2021). The examination was conducted under all the COVID-19 guidelines issued by the Central and State Governments regarding the Corona pandemic.
