Bengaluru: An improper remark by a professor of the National Law School of India University in Bengaluru has kicked off a furore. According reports, the professor scorned a girl for wearing shorts to class. In protest against this public shaming, all girl students wore shorts to the professor’s class the next day.

“The professor not only rebuked the student for wearing shorts, but also questioned her integrity. The argument put forth by the professor was uncalled for and was emphatically protested by other students. Not deterred of consequences, the girl student tried to discuss the issue with the professor, but in vain; the professor went on lambasting her,” said a student of the law college.

The outraged students took to social media platforms to put forth their views. “The Vice Chancellor has taken cognisance of the situation; however we demand that a special committee be formulated to look into the situation and immediate action be taken against the professor. The professor is open to any such inquiry,” a student said.
