Bhopal, Aug 5: Upset over dress code and hostel timing, girl students of Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (MANIT) staged protest here on Friday.

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.

"Dress code should be according to our comfort. Why should we listen to others? Why shouldn't we wear shorts? This is 21st century," another student named Shivangi told ANI.
