Muzaffarpur: In a bizarre and shocking incident, candidates appearing in Army recruitment examination in Bihar`s Muzaffarpur district were asked to sit in underwear.\

Around 1150 candidates had appeared for the exam on Sunday, according to news agency ANI.

But, before they could start witting their papers, the candidates were ordered to take off their clothes and sit in only underwear in an open ground.

Later, it was known that the above exercise was done to prevent candidates from indulging in cheating during the examination.

The exam was being conducted for the recruitment of clerks in the Army.  

In 2015, the state government had to face a major embarrassment when a video clipping of students doing mass cheating during Bihar Board Examination went viral on the social media.
