Her father Zahid told the English daily that after both parties agreed to lodge a report at the Gombak police station, she wasn’t allowed to enter thanks to her attire.

She was asked to wear ‘proper attire’ before being allowed to make the report. She then called me to bring her a pair of long pants and only then was she allowed to make the report,” he said.

He also called upon the authorities to state the dress code more clearly as it was a hassle for the public when making police reports or going to government offices.

“Our elected representatives should bring up a standardised dress code in Parliament for people entering any government property across the board,” he added.

In recent weeks, there has been a spate of reports where individuals were stopped from entering hospitals and government buildings for not adhering to the dress code.
