It’s my freedom in what I want to wear. I am not doing this for a publicity stunt or to become famous. I don’t care what people have to say. I am not inspired by Uorfi Javed. I didn’t even know who she was until recently a friend showed me her photo. However, I look up to her after knowing her story.”

DMRC’s Operations & Maintenance Act in fact lists indecency as a punishable offence under Section 59. We appeal to all our passengers to kindly maintain decorum while traveling on a public transport system like the Metro. However, issues such as the choice of clothing while traveling is a personal issue and passengers are expected to self-regulate their conduct in a responsible manner.”
