Apart from hostel timing, girl students were allegedly asked not to wear shorts and skirts in the campus.

"We are not allowed inside hostel post 9:30 p.m. We have college from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., we go for coaching directly from there. Coaching class ends late, we get so tired. We are forced to sleep in lobby area if we don't make it by 9:30 p.m. However, the same rule is not same for boys," a student named Harsha told ANI.
