The National Commission for Women on Thursday directed the Delhi police commissioner to probe an allegation that a woman was denied entry into a restaurant for wearing a sari.

“Reportedly, the restaurant’s dress code policy for guests allows only smart casuals and according to the eatery, the sari does not fall under smart casuals…. Denying any woman entry to a restaurant on the basis of her attire is a violation of her right to live with dignity,” the NCW said.
