Hindu College is marred in controversy over rules for its new girls hostel. SheThePeople’s Poorvi Gupta caught up with the former warden of the hostel who says there should be no separate rules for men and women.

“Such rules coming from one of the premier colleges in DU are bizarre,” says the ex-warden of the boys hostel of Hindu College, Dr. Poonam Sethi.

Sethi’s term ended on April 4 this year and she was on the job from past three years. She further condemns the college authorities for not including the teachers while laying down the rules. About the students who stay in the college’s hostel, Poonam cites that it is high-time that we start giving freedom to the hostel residents. “They are over 18 years old and we should believe in their wisdom that guides them.”
