TEZPUR- A female candidate was not allowed to appear for an entrance test at an educational institute in Assam’s Tezpur. It was because the girl was wearing shorts, according to media reports.
As per reports, the girl had visited the Girijananda Choudhury Pharmaceutical Sciences where the Agricultural Entrance Test was being held. The authorities of the institution allegedly stopped from entering the premises as she was wearing shorts.
The girl reportedly called up her father and told him about the incident. When the father arrived, he reportedly tried to buy full length pants for her but the authorities gave her a curtain to cover herself. The girl was finally able to give the test after wearing the curtain.
Talking to the media, the girl alleged that the authorities built pressure on her just a few minutes before the test started. She said, ” It is a kind of harassment. In the admit card, there was no mention about dress code.” Her father called out the injustice towards his daughter.
