Tezpur: A 19-year-old woman wearing shorts was allegedly barred from entering the examination hall. The incident took place at Tezpur in Assam. The student alleged that the authorities told her to enter the examination hall only if she was dressed decently. Finally, she sat for the exam wearing a curtain over her shorts.
The student had come to Assam to appear for the entrance examination for the Agricultural University. ‘I had all the hall tickets and identity documents required for the exam. But I was not allowed to enter the examination room. When asked about the matter, she said she was not allowed to enter the hall wearing even shorts.
So there was no suggestion on the hall ticket. I asked what the problem was with the shorts. But they have no answer. They stood firm. Eventually I told my dad to buy pants. I wrote the exam wearing a curtain until my father returned. ‘ Says the girl.
