Bengaluru: A female student of a reputed college in Bengaluru alleged that her invigilator during an online exam addressed her as ‘baby’.

The student shared the screenshot of the conversation on Twitter and claimed that after submitting her answers for her end-semester examination in a PDF format, she asked the invigilator if she could end her exam to which the proctor responded by saying ‘another 3 minutes baby’.

Talking to, a fellow student said that the behavior of the proctor made the other students feel extremely uncomfortable as well.

“The nature of the chats that take place on this third-party platform are sometimes inappropriate and distracting. The behaviour of the proctor also made us feel extremely uncomfortable. He asked us to bend the camera down to a low angle saying he wanted to ensure that no malpractice takes place. But it gave us the feeling that we are being watched in an inappropriate manner,” a fellow student was quoted speaking to Indian Express.

Another student noted that upon approaching the faculties regarding the issue, they were dismissed and asked to take the in the right spirit as the words of the proctor were a mere gesture of his care and goodwill towards the students.
