She told IANS that she asked the staff standing at the gate to show her the rulebook which mentions that they don’t allow women wearing saree inside the restaurant but they didn’t pay heed to it. She added that even the restaurant manager and other staff came outside the hotel. They threatened her to call bouncers and police for creating nuisance at the hotel.
She said that they had booked the table in advance but had to leave the venue as they were not willing to allow her inside.
