A student of Ginni Devi Modi Girls PG College in Modinagar, Ghaziabad stated that the college authorities had denied entry and to attend the function organised on campus.

While speaking to TOI, one of the students said, "We tried to talk to the principal, but she refused entry to us after she notices that we were wearing hijabs. She asked us to come in uniform, we were already in uniform."

In a statement, the college principal said that  "They are making it an issue of hijab, they were not in proper uniform, we didn't do anything wrong".
